What is yoga?
Yoga is a mind and body practice with a 5,000-year history in ancient Indian philosophy that combines physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation/relaxation.
A Short History of Yoga
Yoga is well known for its postures and poses, but what many people don’t realize is that these components were not a key part of original yoga tradition in India, and fitness was not the primary goal. Rather, practitioners and followers of traditional yoga focused on other practices, such as expanding spiritual energy using breathing methods and mental attention.
