Yoga is a process towards looking inward to develop insight, awareness and understanding. To do this, we must practice Shani– the slowing down between impulse and reaction. This slowing down naturally facilitates mindfulness and introspection and gives us the choice on how to respond rather than impulsively reacting to situations and events.
