Manorama has always taught to make sure that you define your terms. It has been one of the most powerful pieces of advice for me as a teacher but even more so as a student. By defining yogic terminology in my own voice has help create a closeness with the subject of yoga and a closeness also with myself.
Sharath in conference laid down some great parameters. Here are just a few.
“yoga means there should be change in you.”
“yoga is sadhana.”
“yoga is the experience that happens within you.”
