One is frequently encouraged to question and to do a deep process of self-inquiry.  Yoga also holds that our consciousness is closely related to our subconscious in such a way that by exerting superior control on the conscious states, we can control our subconscious one in which are contained deeply ingrained values, beliefs and behaviors that may not be healthy or positive or beneficial for humanity.  Since we often think and act in ways that we know are not positive or healthy, we often feel powerless to change.  Various yogic practices help to gain the necessary awareness that gives us access to our subconscious.

Is yoga just a set of poses and stretches? Yoga is not just a set of physical poses.  Yoga does not refer just to the poses as is commonly thought in the West.  Yoga is a series of lifestyle practices that include diet, hygiene, yoga philosophy, breath-control techniques, meditation techniques relaxation techniques, awareness techniques, self-mastery techniques and physical poses that lead to self-realization, compassion and evolution.  Yoga philosophy emphasizes non-judgement, acceptance and compassion at its core.
