Yoga is a great way to relax, improve awareness of the self and improve strength and flexibility. The word 'yoga' is a Sanskrit term which means to yoke. Yoga seeks to bring about the union of mind, body and breath. The aim of yoga is to connect the individual soul with the universe by seeking a more meaningful and peaceful existence.
There are many different types of yoga and each offers a different path. Hatha yoga focuses on the body as a means of bringing wholeness and balance by using postures (asana), breath control (pranayama) and meditation.
Many people can be very sceptical about yoga, as it is very different to what most people have tried before. However yoga can really help to bring tranquility and peace to the mind. It is a great way to de-stress and is a lovely thing to follow in order to bring calmness to one's life.
