“For the yogi, health is not merely determined by the physical body, nor is it created by physical exercise alone.
The Sanskrit word for health is svastha, which, literally translated, means “established in the self”.
To the yogis, true health is a coming home to your Self.
In the condition of not being at home to your Self, there is dis-ease.”
- Mukunda Stiles (from the book 'Structural Yoga Therapy – Adapting to the Individual', p.45)
