First and foremost, many people misinterpret yoga to be just a physical exercise to attain flexibility. This is wrong. Yoga is a way of life. The word has Sanskrit origins which in itself means union. The ultimate aim of yoga is to instil stability between mind, body and soul to envision enlightenment. Yoga is an art form that propagates union of an individual with the omnipresent or divine.
In order to achieve this extraordinary feat yoga introduces breathing exercises, meditation, physical exercises, and so on so forth. Yoga is an ancient science of spirituality that brings harmony in an individual to remain unwavered by emotional outrages. Only a strong mind can withstand such temptations.

Yoga aims to liberate the mind to a higher understanding and a more heightened consciousness that would help you make the right choice when you feel conflicted.

Yoga is for those who are torn between attachment, action,justice, past, prejudice, friends and foes. To enable your mind yoga makes use of ‘yamas’, ‘niyamas’, and ‘asanas’.
