Yoga vs. Exercise: What's the Difference?

At today's noon class in Philadelphia, Dr. Vijayendra Pratap shared some insights into the nature of learning, perspective, and how yoga is different than exercise:

What is the difference between yoga and exercise? Yoga takes you in. Exercise takes you out. Going to a party is exercise. Coming home is yoga.

Students grow and learn from the inside. If the inside is not developed, students may not be ready to handle information coming from outside.

Once you know yourself, you know everything.

When you are not calm and see other people rushing, it is not the other people, it is you who are rushing. When you are calm, the world is calm.
