A Yogi's perspective of the body is one full of awareness. The practitioner approaches movement with an intent to integrate a strong physical instrument with a sharp mind and a sense of openness. The goal is to become the most efficient version of one's self - not from an aesthetic perspective but from a place of knowing that a conditioned physical body leads to clear thought and strong spirit. Soul growth is what the Yogi seeks - and this only becomes possible by developing a connection with our own bodies. We become stronger by getting back to ourselves. We move forward only by delving back into our roots. We excel only by staying in touch with our deepest being.
