What is Yoga?

Yoga is a holistic practice that encompasses various techniques and disciplines including physical postures (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama), meditation, and ethical principles (yamas and niyamas). These techniques are designed to help individuals achieve a balance and harmony between the body, mind, and spirit.

Yoga is believed to have originated in ancient India over 5,000 years ago, and it has evolved over time to include various styles and traditions such as Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, etc.

In addition to its spiritual and meditative benefits, yoga is also known to have many physical and mental health benefits, such as reducing stress, improving flexibility and strength, increasing balance, and promoting better sleep.

Yoga is not just a physical practice, but it is also considered a spiritual practice that aims to develop self-awareness, compassion, and inner peace. The ultimate goal of yoga is to unite the individual self with the divine self or with the universal consciousness.
