From the view of the ancient tradition, “Yoga” means more than being able to do beautiful poses or achieving superb flexiblity. It means more than being able to sit quietly in meditation. It even means more than having a pain-free body or a stress-free mind. All of the above may be desireable, but there is only one true barometer for accomplishment in yoga: the quality of your life. In short, the quality of your yoga is measured by the quality of your life. ParaYoga’s perspective is that practice should be empowering you to thrive in every area of your life.
