Kino MacGregor took to yoga when she found that it healed her strained achilles tendons. But then she found that yoga healed much more than the body. She found that yoga heals the mind too by getting us out of our “conditional pattern of thinking”.
When 22 year old Kino asked her Guru and renowned yoga teacher, Pattabhi Jois, how do I find peace? He did not blow away her query. Instead he replied, “Peace is found if you combine in your practice postures, breath, and drishti (or focussed gazing) and you do this practice for many years then peace will eventually dawn.”
When our mind-body calms down and becomes peaceful our healing is complete. Not only do we discover health, but we find an up swelling of joy and love in our lives.
