Beryl believes that the whole point of practicing yoga – other than for the benefits of clarity, peace of mind, and good physical and mental health – is to have the experience of yoga – of awakening!! Awakening to what? Awakening to the realization that we are all connected. And not just holding that as a worldview, although it is a good world view to hold. But actually getting it in every cell in our body! That transformational moment of boundlessness, of connecting to Great Spirit, opens us to the realization that if we aren’t using our yoga practice, and the resulting awareness it hopefully brings, to serve the planet and it’s inhabitants, then we aren’t really doing yoga.
