What is Yoga?

Yoga originated 5,000 years ago in India. It is NOT a religion. It consists of physical movements, mindful breathing and meditation. The primary aim of yoga is to restore the mind to simplicity and peace, and free it from confusion and stress. This sense of calm comes from the practice of yoga asana (postures) and pranayama (breath). Unlike other forms of exercise, which strain muscles and bones, yoga gently rejuvenates the body. By restoring the body, yoga frees the mind from the negative feelings caused by the fast pace of modern life. The practice of yoga fills up the reservoirs of hope and optimism within you,  and helps you on the path to health and spiritual contentment.
