身心連接 -- 在瑜伽語境裡，身、心和靈之間是分不開的。三者一合（聯合，正是"瑜伽"字面意思之一）存在。纏擾在頭腦中的事，也牽動到身體和精神，反之亦然。換包話說，我們在精神、情緒或思維層面的困擾，很可能反映在身體上。因此，當你全情投入於瑜伽身體層面的練習，(壓抑的)情緒問題便會顯現出來。
//Yoga is not merely an athletic system; it is a spiritual system. The asanas are designed to affect the subtle body for the purpose of spiritual transformation. People enter into the practice of yoga asana for physical fitness or physical health, or even because they've heard it's good for relaxation, but ultimately the purpose of yoga practice is spiritual development.' said Joan Shivarpita Harrigan, Ph.D., a psychologist and the director Knoxville, Tennessee's Patanjali Kundalini Yoga Care, Tennessee.
The Body-Mind Connection -- In yogic terms, however, there is no separation between mind, body, and spirit. The three exist as a union (one definition of the word yoga); what happens to the mind also happens to the body and spirit, and so on. In other words, if something is bothering you spiritually, emotionally, or mentally, it is likely to show up in your body. And as you work deeply with your body in yoga, emotional issues will likely come to the fore.//
