We know yoga builds strength, endurance and flexibility. Butthe best part of yoga may be its effect on the brain. Here are three modernquotes on how yoga can work your mental muscles, as well as the ones in yourbody:

“Yoga has a sly, clever way of short circuitingthe mental patterns that cause anxiety.” (Baxter Bal)

“The most important pieces of equipment you needfor doing yoga are your body and your mind.“ (Rodney Yee)

“Yoga is the practice of quieting the mind.”(Patanjali)
