Yoga is a path to superior fitness, and it may be a path to enlightenment. That depends on your goals. Either way, yoga is both demanding and rewarding. Like all great things, yoga is a journey that takes years to reap the full rewards. Along the path, of course, there is progress and attainment. Every day you do yoga is a good day. Yoga, of all practices, can produce miraculous results. Some yogis and yoginis completely transform both their bodies and minds, as well as their spiritual being. But yoga only leads to the greatest results as part of a complete lifestyle that features holistic living and conscious behavior. It requires support. Diet, emotional management, living in harmony with the environment and seasons, lifestyle regulation, sexual regulation, cleansing and other such factors all play into your yoga practice. Herbs have been used by yogis and yoginis for three thousand years to support their practice and evolution. Dragon Herbs offers many herbs and herbal products that can help you achieve the level you seek.
