Krishnamacharya on mental control
- "The primary goal of classical yoga is to bring concentration and stillness to the mind. A focused mind and a peaceful and positive feeling are vital requirements as well as by-products of an effective asana practice. Yoga should not be for the body alone. Krishnamacharya used to say, 'No mental control, no yoga!'"
~A. G. Mohan
