In Chopra's new book, Living in the Light, he says that yoga is more than just physical exercise; it's a holistic approach to well-being that includes the body, mind, and spirit. He argues that we are all connected to the universe and that we have the power to create our own reality through our thoughts and beliefs. He joins us to explore how his approach fits in the modern world.
