"Seekers who believe they must practice yoga only in the meditation room are under a great illusion. They must practice yoga in society as well. Practicing yoga in the meditation room is easy because there are no external disturbances. But one encounters many disturbances while practicing yoga in society, which Makes it very difficult. The true yogi is one who can successfully protect their mental steadiness while in society." ~Swami Kripalu
