I get the impression that people think that by practicing Yoga it will protect them from all afflictions. Yoga is not a tool to make us invincible (and less in tune with what our body needs). And yet we inflict certain ideals through our Yogic postures onto our bodies by attempting to be someone else whether that is another Yoga student, teacher or picture in a Yoga magazine. When we don't listen to our inherent nature we don't nurture ourselves in this present moment, which is the real gift.
