Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word 'Yuj' which means 'join or Yoke’, is best known as a type of exercise system that stretches and strengthens the body through various poses known as Asanas. But yoga goes far beyond just a mere exercise routine.

One of the most compelling reasons to begin practicing is the holistic outlook it takes–working mind, body and spirit. Yoga is practiced to join the body, mind and soul together, therefore forming a unified spiritual whole.

Meditation

Meditation is an intensely personal and spiritual experience. The desired purpose of each meditation technique is to channel our awareness into a more positive direction by totally transforming one's state of mind. To meditate is to turn inwards, to concentrate on the inner self.
