The practice of yoga dates back over 5000 years. Yoga is believed to be rooted in Hinduism, but the truth is that yoga was in practice long before there were religions or external gods. Today, yoga is practiced for many reasons: managing stress, relaxing, increasing limberness and self-awareness, and acquiring the deepest knowledge of one’s own self.
The word yoga means unite. In yoga we are uniting Mind, Body, and Spirit. In the practice of yoga, you will learn breathing, meditation, relaxation, and asanas (postures). Uniting all to make the mind, body and spirit connection.
After you do yoga for a period of time, you will discover that yoga is no longer a practice you have to make time for, but a way of life. Yoga can be done while sitting at your desk, washing dishes, walking the dog, or sipping your tea or coffee.
