Yoga is a science of living of universal applicability that has been practiced for more than 6,000 years. Yoga means union of the individual soul with the universal soul.
There are 9 main forms of Yoga. They address the physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual needs of a person, which are the three inseparable components of the human being. Hatha Yoga has acquired great popularity as a way to exercise the physical body and achieve radiant health and vitality through its postures (asanas).
Yoga is for everyone - regardless of age, physical condition, or religious inclination. By the practice of Yoga, a person can achieve material and mental/emotional well-being as well as rise from a life of material consciousness to divine consciousness.
The scope of Yoga is extremely vast and goes much deeper beyond the body into the inner layers of the human being.
