54 of the Best Yoga Quotes About Peace

Peace is defined in many ways, but those definitions all have to do with freedom. The freedom from not having to worry about war with others or even a war with yourself and your oppressive thoughts and emotions. Silence, harmony, freedom, and tranquility are all words that are associated with the word peace.

Coming to the conclusion that there is only so much that you can change and there are some things that you personally cannot change is a good first step in finding your way to peace. While practicing yoga and meditating, quieting down that chatter in your mind by focusing on your breaths and making that connection between your mind and body can help you have a sense of peace as well.
