Yoga

The union of mind and body through breath

The term yoga is derived from the literal meaning of “yoking together” a span of horses or oxen but came to be applied to the “yoking” of mind and body or the union of body and breath. Yoga was developed up to 5,000 years ago in India as a comprehensive system for wellbeing on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Yoga is now equated with Hatha Yoga, a system of postures and breathing techniques, but is only part of the overall discipline of Yoga. Today people use the system of Hatha yoga to raise their quality of life in such diverse areas as fitness, stress relief, wellness, vitality, mental clarity, healing, peace of mind and spiritual growth. The physical postures of yoga are used  as a complete exercise program to alleviate health problems, reduce stress and made the spine supple.
