I am beginning to read, "Yoga Anatomy" by Leslie Kaminoff and I came across this statement in the first chapter that resonated with me:
"The moment you're born, you're confronted by two forces that were not present in utero: breath and gravity. To thrive, you need to reconcile those forces for as long as you draw breath on this planet"
Yoga= Breath + Movement
That's it man.
More than that are the adjustments made and the balance restored within the body during a yoga practice--our bodies are magnificent and I wonder how many of us have actually met our own.
