Yoga goes away from words. Word ways of thinking help little and often mislead.

Our talky part with the delusion of self is a small part of our small brains. Together in yoga we move to feel and know ourselves more fully.

Shut up. Shut up deep within. Yoga helps.

Words are a poor tool but one we have, skillful means. Words can help point, but only point. I write about yoga to point to ways I have found useful to teach.

We also have better tools. Our doing is in moving, guiding, feeling.

Where I lack an adequate alternative I use words like pranayama, pada bandha, mula bandha, and wuji. Old words from a different language have no authority. The long history of yoga has variety, a tradition with many teachers and without authority. I name in English where possible. Names, words, are a convenience, nothing more.
