The term Yoga seems to communicate goodness per se and it’s asana component provides the perfect visuals. No wonder that it has become the ideal marketing tool for literally everything and nothing. The term Yoga has been seized by vast armies of pseudo-spiritual materialists in the past two decades. The art of self realization has become “hip, hot and holy”.
The rescue are the ancient texts that detrue fine the meaning of Yoga. Especially Patanjalis Yoga Sutra is our rescue, our guide in the jungle. Patanjali defined the meaning of Ashtanga Yoga 2000 years ago.

By understanding them within us we can avoid the causes of suffering in life in and Yoga.
