What is "tvamevayoga"?

"Tvam eva" is a sanskrit expression for "you are". Tvam eva is common in some yoga chants. So, altogether, that makes "you are yoga". And, that's how I see it: you are yoga and yoga is you. You make it part of yourself and that gives it light and meaning. I hope you will join me and begin or continue your journey to "become" yoga... - Maria
