Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to our breath, which helps us to still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present in the unfolding of each moment. ~Cyndi Lee, “Yoga 101: A Beginner’s Guide to Practice, Meditation, and the Sutras,” YogaJournal.com, 2014 October 7th
