Here are ten of my favorite life changing tips, inspired by quotes from the legendary yogi, B.K.S. Iyengar:

1. Breathe as if you’re divine.

“When you inhale, you are taking the strength from God. When you exhale, it represents the service you are giving to the world.”

2. Go inward.

“The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.”

3. Connect to something greater than yourself.

“The supreme adventure in a man’s life is his journey back to his Creator. To reach the goal he needs well developed and co-ordinated functioning of his body, senses, mind, reason and Self.”

4. Health is the gateway to spiritual well-being.

“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open.”

5. Strive for truth.

“If you take up any noble line and stick to it, you can reach the ultimate. Be inspired, but not proud. Do not aim low; you will miss the mark. Aim high; you will be on the threshold of bliss.”

6. Embrace change.

“Change is not something that we should fear. Rather, it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom, and no one in this world would ever move forward to become the person they’re meant to be.”

7. Be willing to evolve.

“Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one’s being, from bodily health to self-realization. Yoga means union – the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul.”

8. Examine who you are.

“The whole thrust of yogic philosophical and scientific inquiry has therefore been to examine the nature of being, with a view to learning to respond to the stresses of life without so many tremors and troubles.”

9. Be patient with your practice.

“It took me whole decades to appreciate the depth and true value of yoga.”

10. Discover your path

“Illuminated emancipation, freedom, unalloyed and untainted bliss await you, but you have to choose to embark on the Inward Journey to discover it.”
