The word ‘Yoga’ stems from a Sanskrit word that describes unity. The unity here is described in spiritual terms as the union of the individual consciousness with the universal consciousness.
It combines specific exercises, called asanas, and breathing techniques that calm the mind and strengthen the body. It works towards improving various aspects of an individual-physical, emotional and spiritual.
Although an ancient practice, it has still held its ground and is becoming increasingly popular among people of all ages.
It is a life-changing discipline that not only improves flexibility but also primes the body and mind for wellness.
