Several times a year from May to November retreats are run at Universal Yoga, guests come from all over the UK and abroad to spend four hours a day practising yoga postures, an hour or more a day in total silence and otherwise listening to philosophy talks.
Sometimes I cook for these honoured guests and sometimes I just watch the transformation with joy.
One thing I notice every time, is that they leave with a blissful smile and a softer walk, carrying the ancient secret of Yoga.
The immutable and strange secret that yoga taps the source, it connects you back into the vast ocean of joy inside yourself, the reality that never changes. Your mental and physical health are your responsibility and yours alone, yoga is the simple way to reach radiant health and inner peace, what could be more important?
This is why we do yoga.
