In the tradition of yoga, grace is not simply the beauty of movement; it implies presence, surrender and mindfulness. Grace is a state of being that is earned through discipline. The yoga practitioner must be present and devoted to the tradition, renounce the material world, and surrender to the Divine. Finally, the practitioner must be mindful of the breath, the pose and the spiritual intent of the practice. It is only with an attitude of grace that the yoga disciple can transcend secular experience and achieve spiritual rebirth.
