Yoga is a five thousand year old physical and philosophical system designed to improve a person on all levels. Yoga is a Sanskrit word (from the same Indo-European root as the English word ‘yoke’), which means ‘union’. Yoga is principally concerned with uniting the disparate elements of body, mind, intellect, emotions, nerves, soul and so on for a more fulfilled and more efficient living.
Yoga teaches the student to keep their body in tune with their mind and their soul. The body, mind, intellect and breath are all concentrated when performing an asana (posture).
