Everyone is seeking balance in life, and as far as I know it as a teacher, balance comes with the steps to life-freedom, which is the philosophy of Yoga, together with practice, and values for your life. What is the lasting approach to finding balance? Here are some quotes to get that balance we all seem to be seeking: I’ve drawn on what has inspired me over the last 25 years in my practice and teaching.
