The Ancient wisdom is about truly relaxing, and sensing the depth of your being as you observe and experience the outer world. When you relax deeply, you realize your essential nature - your inner peace of being. When you perceive the outer world from this state of peace, you are not troubled or disturbed.
Joyful living then flows from the experience of being at ease and free of mental and physical tension.This, in essence, is the heart and soul of yoga.....to drop all tension, such that the depth of you isrevealed. Ashiyana is a Hindi word meaning home or place of rest, thus alluding to this relaxed, tension-free state.
