"All life is Yoga." This is according to Sri Aurobindo, an Indian nationalist, guru, and one of the earliest beacons who laid down the principles and practices of Integral Yoga
If you are looking for a practice that will help you discover the inner feeling of home in your body and spirit, you may want to explore Purna Yoga. This is a specific style of Yoga that features Iyengar precision and alignment while bringing physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual awareness and helps facilitate personal growth.

Purna Yoga is a complete form of body work that does it all. It develops a sense of balance and harmony, and involves stretching to gain flexibility, Meditation
to develop peace of mind, and relaxation. Indeed, Yoga is more than stretching and relaxation: it is the ultimate mind-body challenge.

Offering wisdom and techniques for the union of the body and the mind with the spirit, Purna Yoga teaches alignment-based Asana, Meditation, and pranayama, along with nutrition and yogic living. Purna Yoga is the art of loving yourself by living from the heart.
People who have done no physical exercise at all find numerous benefits from this type of Yoga. Its foundation is through careful alignment of the body as you hold the poses. This precision and the awareness that comes with it will lead to tremendous growth - physically, mentally, and emotionally.
