Facebook is enlightening at times. I discovered on social media feeds and groups that yoga teachers are constantly misinforming each other and their students about yoga and meditation. I see feeds that write about how meditation and yoga are two separate things and how "yoga has nothing to do with meditation". Nothing could be further from the truth
The ultimate goal of yoga is to reach the state of meditation. Yoga is a discipline of focus and concentration creating the space for blissful meditation. You reach this state though daily work, not through proclamations of "i meditate" (lower case i intended). Practicing inner work on yourself, your reactions, your desires, to how you fuel the body, to the good state of mind you have all send you closer to the goal of yoga.
The classical 8 limbed path (Ashtanga) of yoga is the system we practice and teach at our studio. This is a non-dualistic and non-religious practice of yoga. In this practice we have aspects of our self to discipline and align in order to achieve the state of meditation and peace. In Ashtanga yoga, peace isn't something handed to us on a silver platter or given to us through the mental states of sleep and fantasy. It is through daily work and discipline we gain the state of peace.
