Yoga is connecting to the Divine. Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has said, ‘Yoga is a study of life, study of your body, breath, mind, intellect, memory, and ego.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar further said, ”Vismaya Yoga Bhumika’: ASTONISHMENT is the preface for Yoga. If you are astonished/stunned, that is when yoga begins, means your spiritual journey begins, meditation begins and helps for free mind. So you must be astonished in order to get into yoga. ‘
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar beautifully said, ‘Yoga makes you a child again’. Not childish, childlike. Children are creative, have a sense of wonder for all things.Inspired by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, leading Yoga Gurus of various lineages came together at The Art of Living International Center for a two day ‘International Yoga Summit’. The two-day conference had eminent speakers exploring ways to use yoga as value-based education .
