Yoga

Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in ancient India. It became popular in the West in the 20th century. The word, yoga, comes from the Sanskrit yuj, which means “to yoke” and “samadhi” or “concentration.” Thus, yoga is the practice that aims to join the mind, body and spirit. The ultimate goal of yoga is to achieve liberation. Yoga has many potential benefits, including:

· Stress relief

· Increased physical stamina and strength

· Self-reflection and increased self-awareness

· Heightened self-confidence and improved self-image

· Pain relief

· Better sleep
