What is Yoga?The Sanskrit word "Yoga" means to yoke, to join, or to unite. When we practice yoga, we are learning or relearning the state of unity, harmony, and bliss in the body, mind, and spirit. Over thousands of years, the science of yoga has proven itself an effective way to cultivate physical health, develop concentration, experience peace of mind, and realize our oneness in spirit.
Yoga is the science of personal development. It is a method of learning that aims to attain unity of mind, body, and spirit through techniques involving exercise, breathing, and meditation.
Yoga is a way to attain a healthy body and mind. A balanced, comprehensive yoga practice includes the following five principles that lead us toward good health.
1. Proper relaxation
2. Proper exercise
3. Proper breathing
4. Proper diet
5. Positive thinking and meditation
Yoga is a discipline. Whatever type of yoga you choose to practice, be assured that you will not learn it over night. Yoga is a skilled activity, and it takes time to attain competence in any skilled activity. It takes practice, repetition,commitment, and dedication to progress toward mastery of yoga.
