Many people pursue yoga as a form of exercise, with classes offered at gyms, community centers, and yoga studios everywhere. There are a range of different types of yoga. Each instructor focuses on different aspects of the practice. Most yoga classes include three basic elements: poses, breathing, and meditation.
What are the roots of yoga?
The practice of yoga can be traced back to the earliest days of civilization. They evolved from a spiritual discipline that focuses on uniting the mind and body in harmony. In fact, the word yoga itself is derived from Sanskrit and literally translates as “to join” or “to unite.” According to legend, yoga began when the first yogi – the “Adiyogi” – stood near a lake in the Himalayas and shared his knowledge with the seven sages – the Saptarishis. Those sages then carried the science of yoga to every corner of the globe. The practice took root most fully in India, where the sage who arrived worked to craft Indian culture around the principles of yoga. These principles include uniting individual and universal consciousness, creating harmony between yourself and nature, and achieving self-realization.
Is yoga religious?
While yoga is considered spiritual, it’s not religious, and there’s no belief system or set of rules involved. Anyone can practice yoga and reap the benefits.
What are the physical benefits of yoga?
The physical yoga poses improve balance and flexibility. As a form of exercise, yoga has many benefits for physical fitness:
Increases strength and range of motion.
Is shown to reduce pain and depression in patients with chronic back pain.
Can be practiced to help manage diabetes.
Helps cancer patients improve sleep quality and overall well-being.
Is associated with reduced blood pressure.
Does yoga help manage stress?

How important is breathing in yoga?
Breathing is an important element of yoga. Pranayama – or deep breathing – slows your heart rate, reduces stress, and helps to create a feeling of calmness. During a yoga class, controlling your breath is a way to help control your body and your mind.
What are yoga moves called?
Poses – also known as asanas or postures – are the physical movements of yoga. An instructor guides you to align your body in specific positions that increase strength and flexibility. Practicing poses is called Hatha yoga, which is the physical aspect of yoga that helps to prepare your body for increased energy.
Is meditation a part of yoga?
Meditation is the portion of yoga that focuses internally, as opposed to the external processes of posing and breathing. Dhyana and Dharana – meditation and concentration – involve trying to distill your focus to one point, which is often accomplished by repeating a mantra. Through this meditation, you learn to be present in the moment and reap the benefits of mindfulness.
