What is Yoga?
The word “Yoga” was derived from the Sanskrit word yuj which means union or uniting of the individual consciousness and mindfulness. The practice of yoga into the Yoga Sutra originated about 2,000 years ago and has been famous since ancient times. It is an ascetic discipline which includes breath control, meditation, and the adoption of definite body posture. Yoga although looks like a physical exercise or an asana, it actually is an emotional integration and spiritual elevation for the mind, body and soul.
