Introduction to Yoga

introduction to yoga

Yoga is a path towards total harmony of body, mind, and spirit.

The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word yuj, which means union. Union of the individual consciousness with the universal consciousness.

Yoga is not merely a form of exercise for the body. It is an ancient wisdom - for a healthier, happier, and more peaceful way of living - which ultimately leads to union with the Self.

It is an inherent desire in humans to be happy. The ancient sages, through inquiry about life, were able to reach a state of consciousness in which the secrets of healthier, happier, and meaningful living were revealed to them.

Though yoga comes from Hinduism, the knowledge of yoga transcends any religion or culture. Its application is universal!
