The Meaning Of Yoga

Yoga (roughly translated as To Unite) is an ancient Hindu practice that takes care of the physical, mental and spiritual dimensions of a human being.

It originated from India thousands of years ago and symbolizes the joining of mind, body and consciousness.

It consists of hundreds of postures, breathing exercises and meditations.

B. K. S. Iyengar

“Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day-to-day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions.”

B. K. S. IYENGAR
