What is Yoga?
Yoga is a practice of physical, mental, and spiritual exercises that originated in ancient India. There are many health benefits, physically to stretch and strengthen the body with an emphasis on breath work, mentally to train your mind to self-observe and focus inward, and spiritually to become more aware of your energetic being and achieve a higher consciousness within. The two key parts to a Yoga session are Asanas (the movements and body positions) and Pranayama (the breath work and control of your breathing). There are also various kinds of different yoga practices, such as Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Kundalini, Bikram, and Yoga Nidra. We encourage you to explore the various types to determine which one is the best fit for you, as there is no one right path for everyone.
