Yoga is a deeply nourishing self enquiry. It is not self enquiry with the aim of self flagellation. Although oft touted as a way of life, there is no one yogic way of life. Yoga is a broad church. Its central tenets, yam and niyam, are not the ten commandments imposed upon us from some external authority. Instead they are each a dualistic lens through which one can view oneself and one's life.

It has solidified a lot for me as part of my yoga teacher training process and apprenticeship with Debbie Farrar (2012-Present). What began as a simple google search has now become a more living understanding.
