YOGA IS A SANSKRIT WORD that means “to yoke or reconnect.” The goal of yoga is Yoga—to remember one’s connection to God—the Supreme Source, eternal happiness itself. Yoga teaches that within each living being there is an eternal soul, the atman. The practices enable us to reconnect to the atman and to understand that our mortal bodies are dwelling places for our immortal soul. The practices alchemically transform our perception of who we are. The body of the enlightened yogi houses the light of truth. The yogi lives in the world as an instrument for this truth. There are many yoga practices that can guide a person along the way to that magical remembering of who he or she really is. Some of those practices are explored in this book.
