Fortunately there are ways of reaching out or reaching in, and one of them is the practice or to become a yoga teacher. There are many types of yoga practices, yet they all aim to achieve one thing: union. A union with the Self and the One, as yogis call Samadhi (intuitive enlightenment). To find pure consciousness (Atman) through yoga practice is finding that union with the Divine Cosmic Being (Brahman) are one.
Thus the aim of yoga is a mystical one; however many that practice yoga merely find the benefits of muscular toning, balance and mental well-being without realizing the spiritual benefits. Just feeling the healthy nature of their bodies and mind joining together in a way they have never felt before brings them towards the aim of the union yogis have discovered for centuries ago.
Yoga training is a wonderful approach to stay present, which manifests those feeling of bliss, joy, tranquility, relaxation, and wholeness. It is a way of remembering our true nature, which is essentially joyful and peaceful. Anyone can practice yoga to realize their full potential. As the practice develops so does this intimate relationship with self. Through intense self-observation and inquiry, the ancient yogis were able to achieve the wholeness that we are all questioning and searching for.
Nonetheless, all of this enlightenment takes work. It is not strenuous work, however, or the work of strict rules or authority of dogma. It is not a religious work, although it will bring a person to realize the truth that many religions teach. Yoga is a way of living and being that makes real happiness possible.
