Brett: „Yoga has profound effects on our physical bodies; it purifies our internal organs and brings health, strength and vitality. Even deeper and more meaningful can be the wisdom gleaned through practice about what this very life is, who we are, what we are doing here and where we are going. It is indeed essential to approach yoga with a sense of adventure. Yoga is about raising consciousness and living with greater awareness and sensitivity towards oneself and with the environment around us. It is the greatest teacher because our knowledge and understanding is a consequence of our practice and rests on our very own direct experience. Yoga is radical because it will invite us out of the shadows, it will show us the masks we wear and the ways worldly delusion impedes our true path, purpose and contentment in life. It teaches us about our own patterns of psychology. It challenges the very bedrock of our attitudes, assumptions and compulsions so that we can see ourselves and ultimately come to understand how to live with greater skill and cooperation in our lives. It teaches us whatever is uniquely required by us as individuals. It is the diamond hiding in the rough of this life. The lotus flower that is born of the dross and muck. The elixir. That is why I love it and can’t imagine life without it.“
