Objectify the brain

 “Learn to treat the brain as an object and the body as a subject. This is the first lesson yoga teaches. ‘Diffuse that energy from the brain to the other parts of the body, so that the body and the brain may work in concord and the energy be evenly balanced between the two.’ That is the beginning of the healing process, since the release in tension in the brain brings relaxation to the nerves.” ~~Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar, “Tree of Yoga” p.94
