Ever wondered what the big hype about Yoga is and why people enjoy those seemingly impossible and weirdly twisted poses? Most people have a general idea what “Yoga” is all about, but Yoga is so much more than just putting yourself in “weird” positions. In fact, Yoga is all about harmonizing the body with the mind and breathing through the means of various breathing techniques, yoga postures (asanas) and meditation.
What is Yoga?
Stemming from the Sankrit word “yuj” which means “to unite or integrate,” Yoga has been diligently practiced all over the world for over 5000 years. In essence, Yoga is the union of body, mind and spirit.
