What is Yoga?
Yoga is an ancient practice that originated in India thousands of years ago. It uses physical postures, breath control, meditation, ethical principles, and philosophical teachings. Yoga is a way to achieve balance and harmony in various aspects of life, including the body, mind, and spirit.
Yoga unites and integrates the individual's physical, mental, and spiritual dimensions. The word "yoga" is derived from the Sanskrit word "yuj," which means to join or unite. Through the practice of yoga, individuals cultivate self-awareness, inner peace, and a sense of connection to themselves and the world around them.
Yoga uses asanas, which involve a series of postures or poses that are performed to improve strength, flexibility, balance, and body awareness. These postures are often combined with conscious breathing techniques, known as pranayama, which help to calm the mind, increase energy, and enhance the flow of life force energy within the body.
Yoga incorporates meditation and mindfulness practice that focuses the mind and cultivates a state of mental clarity, relaxation, and inner stillness.
