What is Yoga?
The word Yoga comes from yui, a 5,000-year old Sanskrit word meaning to yoke, join, or unite. The Iyengar school of Yoga defines yui as the “joining or integrating of all aspects of the individual—body, mind, and soul—to achieve a happy, balanced, and useful life.” Reaching kaivalya, emancipation, or ultimate freedom is the aim of Yoga. The science of Yoga uses asanas (postures), focused concentration on specific body parts, and pranayama (breathing techniques) to unify the body with the mind and the mind with the soul.
The Benefits of Yoga
Yoga benefits go well beyond stress management. Regular practice can increase flexibility and improve balance. The pranayama, or breathing techniques, can have positive effects on asthma, depression, lower back pain, and memory. Yoga, combined with diet, aerobic exercise, and meditation, can help with cardiovascular disease rates and blood pressure levels. Yoga helps people cope better with daily demands and to sleep more soundly.
