What is yoga?

The word yoga comes from Sanskrit and means “to connect” or “to unite”. Through yoga we aim to unite the body and mind. Yoga is more than just the physical practice of postures (asanas). Postures are combined with breathing exercises (Pranayama), meditation (dhyana) and focus (dharana).
