To be proud of our yoga positions is bad taste. To be able to do the poses “successfully” means nothing, nothing at all. Yoga should not become a circus. It must not be done as a refuge from life.
Though yoga will somehow protect you, it cannot be used to protect, or made to give health.
It should instead help us to purify the body and the mind bringing us back to that blessed state of receptivity from which we can start to learn.
