"atha yoga anushasanam"
The first lines in the ancient yogic text known as the Yoga Sutra's may perhaps have been simply translated as, "Now, the teachings of Yoga". However, many scholars believe this one word and first word written, Atha, is summarizing the whole practice and knowledge of yoga into one simple word, "Now". This concept of being present is not easy to achieve and the beauty and peace that can be discovered there... that maybe what Yoga is all about. Equanimity. So no matter why you come to a class or show up for yourself at home, be it physical, emotional, or mental, Yoga covers it all. Atha, it is all happening now.
