Many things about Martin Luther King Jr. go along with yoga. He used his wise words to change laws. He did not use violence even though violence was used against him. He dreamt of making the world a better place to live in where people were not judged and were treated equally.
We can learn from MLK and try to live more like him by having strength and courage and to solve our problems peacefully. Yoga helps you gain strength and flexibility and to have kind thoughts that you can share with others.
