The practice of Yoga helps us connect with the part of ourselves that is always virgin and untouched:
the place within us that can never be damaged.
While pain may be the catalyst that brings us to Yoga practice, it is joy that renews our commitment.
As our glimpses of calm and clarity become more frequent, and as our response to the challenges of life becomes more skillful, we wish to practice not simply to get ourselves out of a fix, but also to strengthen our connection with this base of contentment.
The joy that I refer to is not the climactic high we associate with excitement or stimulation, but a deep sense of awe and wonder that can suffuse the most ordinary things and the most ordinary moments.
