Yoga is more than Asanas
“When there is no mind, you are in yoga: when there is mind, you are not in yoga. So you may do all the postures, but if the mind goes on functioning, if you go on thinking, you are not in yoga.” — Osho
The mind-body connection of yoga lost strength as it spread across the Western globe. Whether the understanding was lost in translation or people were not prepared for the spiritual quest, yoga has changed meaning. With that being said, there are many spiritual teachers who live and teach yoga beyond the asanas.
