The Wait is Over

“Yoga is skill in action. The skill is to see, how to keep your spirit uplifted, your energy high and accomplish the task in hand. This comes only by Yoga. Yoga should not be limited or misunderstood as just some exercise. It is a holistic development, expression & connection of human life.”
— Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Founder of the Art of Living Foundation
“The only way to experience true well being is to turn inward.
This is what yoga means– not up, not out, but in.The only way out is in.”
—Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, Founder of the Isha Foundation
