Yoga as a combination of art and science

"Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one's being, from bodily health to self realization. Yoga means union - the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul. Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day to day life and endows skill in the performance of one's actions." - B.K.S. Iyengar
It is interesting to see yoga as an all encompassing term for holistic living that unites our body, soul and spirit (consciousness). I have come to see yoga as a combination of art and science - the art of being yoked with our true self in oneness of breath and action, and the science of health and spirituality.  It is no wonder yoga has a part to play in the evolution of humanity. I agree with the quote that yoga is useful for living each day with poise and awareness, peace and calm. Conscious living and breathing keeps us centered and balanced physically, emotionally and spiritually in the face of ups and downs in life, as we are anchored to our true identity of divine unconditional love. Through self-realisation, perfect love casts out fear, and perfect peace guards our heart and mind in Christ consciousness.
