"Yoga has been evolved over the centuries as to exercise every muscle, nerve and gland in the body... but its real importance lies in the way it trains and disciplines the mind. Many actors, acrobats, athletes, dancers, musicians and sportmen possess superb physiques and have great control over the body but they lack any control over the mind, the intellect and the self. Hence they are in disharmony with themselves and one rarely comes across a balanced personality among them. They put the body above all else. Though the yogi does not underrate his body, he does not think merely of its perfection but of his senses, mind, intellect and soul."

-B.K.S. Iyengar
