'All across the world, in response to the stress of our growing world crisis, millions of people are turning to yoga as a way of discovering the peace which can be experienced within the body, heart and mind. This peace has been described in all the mystical traditions as the primordial gift of the source.

For yoga to be truly transformative, it needs to return to its ancient roots in a universal mystical vision that celebrates the body as the creation and temple of divine consciousness. The danger of a great deal of the modern teaching of yoga is that it either glosses over or ignores this essential teaching in favor of a seductive emphasis on optimal health and physical appearance. While these are, of course, radiant by-products of yoga, they were never intended as its exclusive goal.'
