“The word ‘yoga’ means ‘union.’ Union means you begin to experience the universality of who you are. For example, today, modern science proves to you beyond any doubt that the whole existence is just one energy manifesting itself in various forms. If this scientific fact becomes a living reality for you – that you begin to experience everything as one – then you are in yoga. When you are in yoga, you experience everything as a part of yourself.
Yoga is a group of physical, Mental, and Spiritual, practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India There is a broad variety of yoga schools, practices, and goals.The origins of yoga have been speculated to date back to pre-Vedic Indian traditions
Yoga gurus from India later introduced yoga to the west following the success of Swami Vivekananda in the late 19th and early 20th century In the 1980s, yoga became popular as a system of physical exercise across the Western world. Yoga in Indian traditions, however, is more than physical exercise, it has a meditative and spiritual core. Many studies have tried to determine the effectiveness of yoga as a complementary intervention for cancer, schizophrenia, asthma and heart disease. The results of these studies have been mixed and inconclusive, with cancer studies suggesting none to unclear effectiveness, and others suggesting yoga may reduce risk factors and aid in a patient’s psychological healing process
“Yoga is not just about living better. It is about exploring the very source of life.”
