All About Yoga


Yoga is a basic thing and if you’ve had the opportunity to visit a country where it has existed for generations: India, Japan, China, and others it’s really ordinary. The practice of yoga came to the west back in 1893 when one of India’s celebrated gurus, Swami Vivekananda, was welcomed at the World Fair in Chicago. He is now known for having sparked the West’s interest in yoga. Literally, the word yoga comes from the Sanskrit term Yug which means: “to yoke, bind, join, or direct one’s attention”. At the same time, yoga can also imply concepts such as fusion, union and discipline. The sacred scriptures of Hinduism define yoga as “unitive discipline”; the kind of discipline that leads to inner and outer union, harmony and joy. In essence, yoga is most commonly understood as conscious living; of tapping into one’s inner potential for happiness.
