More quotations from B.K.S. Iyengar:

“The material body has a practical reality that is accessible. It is here and now, and we can do something with it. However, we must not forget that the innermost part of our being is also trying to help us. It wants to come out to the surface and express itself.”

“Penetration of our mind is our goal, but in the beginning to set things in motion, there is no substitute for sweat.”

“It is through the alignment of the body that I discovered the alignment of my mind, self, and intelligence.”

“You do not need to seek freedom in a different land, for it exists with your own body, heart, mind, and soul.”

“When I stretch, I stretch in such a way that my awareness moves, and a gate of awareness finally opens… My body is a laboratory, you can say.I don’t stretch my body as if it is an object. I do yoga from the self towards the body, not the other way around.”
