Like water being wrung from a cloth, the process of yoga drains us of false conditioning. Negative samskara and the pain of repetition are replaced with more positive habits. Yoga unpacks us particle by particle, cell by cell. Its integrative force pulls us together again. Like fearless explorers, we dive into the body unwinding the knots that bind. We then begin to live in tune with the energies of the subtle body, or at least we can catch moments of this.
