'Guru' the jack of all traits, the enlightened mind, is also apart of Yoga. Yoga Gurus do not just influence a art form,but a sense of  culture.  Yoga Guru's were actually the first to propose yoga to the west in the 20th Century.

1980 Yoga was known as a form of exercise in the US and often mixed up with pilates for toning, building strength, and endurance to the mind and body. However, Yoga and Pilates differ to vast degrees from one another. They represent two different things.

Yoga Quotes

‎"In the darkness, I am light.”

"All I’m saying is that to liberate the potential of your mind, body and soul, you must first expand your imagination. You see, things are always created twice: first in the workshop of the mind and then, and only then, in reality. I call this process ‘blueprinting’ because anything you create in your outer world began as a simple blueprint in your inner world.” ~ Robin Sharma,

“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.” Gandhi.

"I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul." ~ by Rumi -

“Our bodies are our gardens—our wills are our gardeners.“ Shakespeare.

"The most important pieces of equipment you need for doing yoga are your body and your mind.” ~ Rodney Yee
