The goal of yoga is stilling the mind and coming into union with the infinite. Don Miguel is a great Sage who points to ways to right living and how we can achieve it. The Four Agreements is a book that I often supply to various yoga teacher trainings, and if you've never read it, I'm sure you could benefit by taking a look.
I was reading something by an Iyengar teacher recently, who said the postures are only 1% of Yoga. The other 99% is trying in other ways to reach a state of Samadhi or enlightenment. Immersion in the teachings of various traditions can help.
The Four Agreements are:
- Be Impeccable with Your Word
- Don't Take Anything Personally
- Don't Make Assumptions
- Always Do Your Best
