About The Video


It’s easy to assume that yoga is just about looking good. The glamorous pictures on Instagram and power yoga classes make it seem like the only point of yoga is to get into difficult postures or get into shape. But 5,000 years ago, yoga was developed in India as a way to harmonize the mind, body, and soul.

In this video, Mindvalley Founder Vishen Lakhiani shares how society started to misrepresent yoga over time and what true yoga actually is.¬†Watch this video if you want to break those stereotypes you have in the mind or if you’ve ever asked the questions:

  • “Am I young enough to do yoga?”
  • “Am I flexible enough?”
  • “Am I strong enough?”
  • “Do I have to give up the food I love?”
  • “Do I have to join an expensive studio?”

As Vishen says,

True yoga is about how you feel about yourself: your spirit, your mind, your body, no matter who, what, when you are in life. It is your personal journey towards the goals you want to achieve.


How do you want yoga to support your life? What are your yoga goals?
