Yoga is simply not a workout; it is a way of living and livelihood for a healthy mind and a healthy body. Yoga is the most valuable and priceless gift given to us by our ancestors. The origin and tradition of Yoga is almost 5000 years old and is practiced in India since ancient times by our ancestors. “YOGA” is derived from a Sanskrit word “Yuj” which means “to unite”. Yoga has a positive physical effect and it brings balance between soul, body and mind. Man is a combination of physical, spiritual and mental being; yoga helps promote a balanced development of all the three. Other forms of physical exercises, like aerobics, assure only physical well-being. They have little to do with the development of the spiritual or astral body. Yoga can be practiced at any age and it is suitable for all the people and requires no skills for performing it. We should include Yoga in our daily routine for a healthy, peaceful and happy life. Yoga teaches a way of life giving us numerous benefits to live our life in a healthy and positive way.
