Top Yoga Practice Tips

The practice of yoga is a continuously evolving and unfolding process, that occurs both on a personal level as well as a global scale. The goal and intent of a yoga practice is to repeatedly perform specific yogic techniques to achieve a level of mastery and understanding. This proficiency can then open other doors and levels of experiences. This process also refines and uncovers new ideas and techniques as well as discards old or ineffectual ones.

At YogaBasics we love to provide tips and how-to’s to help you explore, deepen and refine your yoga practice. In our in-depth topics and articles, we examine and investigate the subtitles of this ancient practice. In our Yoga Practice Tips section, we aim to introduce you to something new as well as encourage you to look at your current yoga practices from a new perspective.

Yogic Wisdom

You cannot understand life and its mysteries as long as you try to grasp it. Indeed, you cannot grasp it, just as you cannot walk off with a river in a bucket. If you try to capture running water in a bucket, it is clear that you do not understand it and that you will always be disappointed, for in the bucket the water does not run. To have running water you must let go of it and let it run.
-Alan Watts
