Purpose & Benefits of Yoga
Yoga is a practice that combines physical postures (asanas) with breath work (pranayama) to return union (the word “yoga” in essence meaning “in union”) to the body, mind, & spirit for which all humans regardless of race, skin colour, background, religion, or any other defining label, can benefit from.
The physical postures of yoga combined with breathing techniques are used to provide a wide range of relief from and alleviate health problems, reduce stress and make the spine supple in contemporary times. Yoga is also used as a complete exercise program and physical therapy routine. It is a package deal, for body, mind and spirit.
