"It is not that the person needs to accommodate him or herself to yoga, but rather the yoga practice must be tailored to fit each person. This implies that progress on the path of yoga means different things for different people. We must not obstruct this progress by deliberately setting certain goals. Yoga serves the individual, and does so through inviting transformation rather than by giving information."
From "The Heart of Yoga" by TKV Desikachar.
