Keys to Deepen Your Yoga Practice

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.
