Yoga and Ayurveda are inextricably linked. They are even both spoken of together in ancient Ayurvedic texts such as the Charaka Samhita. Yoga is a deeply spiritual discipline that combines physical, mental, and spiritual elements. In fact one definition of yoga could be interpreted as the union between the Mind, Body and Soul.

In order to motivate you to get on the mat, we have compiled a list of great Yoga quotes – we hope one or more of these will inspire you to take up the regular practice of Yoga – preferably as part of your Dinacharya (regular routine).
