Teaching Self-Mastery Through Yoga

How can we teach our students about self-mastery? Ultimately, our students need to find the teacher within. The heart of yoga is spiritual. Before being introduced to the West during the past few centuries, yoga was virtually unknown outside of its culture of origin. The term "yoga" arose in ancient India and often referred to Patanjali's school of philosophy. When used in this sense, it is sometimes called Raja yoga to distinguish it from the schools that arose later.
