While pop-culture makes us believe that yoga is restricted to just physical poses, the storm that the practice took the world by proves that it’s way more than that. The idea of taking care of your mind, body, and spirit together has resonated with many, making it a revolution that’s currently worldwide. The origins of yoga can be traced back to the Indus valley civilization up until today where a wide range of contemplative and self-disciplinary practices like meditation, mantra, prayer, breath work, ritual, and action is a part of it. What is now most prominent in the modern world denotes a modern form of Hatha yoga, and often focuses on posture-based physical fitness, stress relief, and relaxation techniques.  

The term ‘yoga’ comes from the word ‘yuj’, which denotes ‘to yoke’ or ‘to bind’. While the word has several meanings, the primary connotation is connection. The practice symbolizes the deeper inner connection between the mind, body, and soul which is not just to be achieved through asanas but also through rich inner work through various techniques. It is incredible for our overall well-being and has various benefits such as:  

Improved flexibility 

Stress relief

Reduced inflammation 

Increased strength and immunity 

Reduced anxiety 

Overall improved quality of life
