The quest for the Self is a key aim of the yoga tradition. Here at Great Heart Yoga, we take the time to not only practice, but to also really savor the beautiful and ancient teachings from the yoga tradition. Here is a timeless passage from the Upanishads:
The Self is in all.
He/She is all the gods, the five elements,
Earth, air, fire, water, and space; All creatures,
Great or small, born of eggs, of wombs, of heat,
Of shoots, horses, cows, elephants, men and women;
All beings that walk, all beings that fly,
And all that neither walk nor fly.
- Aaitryeya Upanishad
