In the ancient Indian Sanskrit language ‘Yoga’ means unity. Yoga is a philosophy about creating peace and harmony – not only within ourselves but also around us. Yoga is an art of merging opposites into balance and oneness. If we are peaceful, we can create peace around us.
While practicing Yoga, we cultivate our self-awareness by narrowing our focus and moving away from negative emotions and distractions of the mind and body. We are completely in the present moment and experience a deeply fulfilling feeling of stillness and peace.
