The final section of the book is a summary of its argument. It recapitulates the findings of the third chapter and rephrases them in terms of the enactive approach to life and cognition. It redefines yoga practice as a cognitive activity that gives the practitioner the embodied tools to construe their identity, their position in the world, and their capacity to adapt to this world through continuous transformation.
