“Start doing yoga from where you are now. Not from where you were yesterday, not tomorrow, not next week. Start from the present. HERE begins the teachings of yoga with the right intent at the right time… NOW. If you seek a class teacher (which is advisable), find a teacher who you feel comfortable with, that creates the right energy in the room, that is in touch with the students. Use your discernment. ”
This is Verse 1: Chapter 1 from Michelle Corrigan’s ‘Your quest for a spiritual life’, a little helpful book that she wrote of her interpretations of Patanjali’s Sutras. I find it an excellent source of information, inspiration and an up to date, modernised version of the Sutras.
