Relax Your Mind And Enlighten Your Soul With Yoga !!!!


Yoga is a time old practice which originated in India some five thousand years ago. Since its origin, yoga aims to radiate peace and tranquility within the mind, body and soul. Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘yuj’ which essentially means to join or unite. Thus, yoga refers to the self uniting of an individual with cosmic consciousness or the Universal Whole. Yoga Poses (Asanas), Meditation (Dhyana) and proper breathing practice (Pranayama )are the keys to yoga.

Practicing yoga paves the holistic path and help you to connect yourself to the Omnipotent. With passing time, yoga has become a non-denominational concept, that is, it has become an integral part of all religions.

This eventually benefits a practitioner by providing increased energy to the body and develop the different faculties of the brain.
