Here are some of my favourite yoga quotes. These quotes have inspired me throughout my yoga journey and I am sure that you will find them equally inspiring. They are perfect for addition to your yoga class plan or you can just read them daily for inspiration and motivation.

― B.K.S. Iyengar

2. “The past is already gone; the future is not yet here. There’s only one moment for you to live.” ― Buddha

3. “There’s no value in digging shallow wells in a hundred places. Decide on one place and dig deep. Even if you encounter a rock, use dynamite and keep going down.

6. “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.
