Why Do You Practice Yoga?

What does it mean to live a life of awareness?

Does it mean that you use your yoga practice to educate yourself and others, to see the world as it really is (discernment), and to reshape consciousness? Or do you use your yoga, or more specifically asana, to make yourself fit — to fit in with the latest fitness craze, to be ‘cool’ or as an avenue for fame and fortune?

If the second scenario describes your yoga practice, you won’t find what you are looking for in the long term, because honestly, this is not what yoga is all about.
