Raw, adjective: 6. ignorant, inexperienced, or untrained: a raw recruit.
This is the chant we've been singing lately in class. (Sometimes I find it helps to see the words visually. At least, it's always helped me.)
The words are from Patanjali's first Sutra, meaning "Now is the time for yoga to begin."
(The kicker, of course, is that we are truly singing this chant in every breath, in every new moment, whether on or off the mat. Now, here, atha, is always the time for yoga to begin.)
