Many aspects of yoga are about being in the moment and at one with nature and the universe. That is why so many asanas (positions) reflect animals and nature. By putting our body into the shape of a tree or exploring the graceful wingspan of a bird, by breathing like the cycle of tides or the ocean, a sense of harmony, timelessness and connection to the universe is evoked. Yoga is commonly practiced indoors; but when practiced outdoors, it brings union with nature. Breath after breath you feel the inner peace you were missing so long.
