Yoga is an ancient discipline founded in India, and considered a practical aid rather than a religion. The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word Yuj, meaning union, and aims to explore body, mind and spirit by systematically stretching and strengthening muscles of the body, thus increasing blood circulation to internal organs and glands. As well as making the physical body flexible and strong, continued practice of yoga will promote emotional stability and clarity, vitality, deep relaxation, and peace of mind.
The ultimate aim of yoga practice is self development and self realization. Once learned, yoga can be used as a tool to enable the yogi to to align and balance their body. As we are all well aware, old age can bring about various illnesses and diseases.
