Pain is resistance to inevitable change. Everything that is, is only as long as we perceive it. The world, universe, cosmos is in constant state of flux, that is in everything that exists, including our body and mind. Yoga practice is about embracing the constant change instead of feeling bonded and limited, one embraces transformations of life as liberating and expanding forces that enriches the character and shape body-mind dynamics.

Kashmir Shaivism has penetrated to that depth of living thought where diverse currents of human wisdom unite in a luminous synthesis.
More than being a school of thought, Kashmmir Shaivism is the way of life itself. It is tolerant and mystical path, where reality is perceived as a manifestation of divine consciousness, and not being separate from it Cosmos is real for all practical purposes. Our life is real, in all its richness. Life is about remembering to divinize one self and one´s life, which means the recognition of our own identity with all-pervading consciousness.
Consciousness is the being
Asana (pose, attitude) is the happiness of immersion in Shakti (divine energy)
