Yoga is an ancient East-Asian practice that is supposed to help the body strengthen its connection with nature, and achieve an inner Truth through relaxation, meditation, and spiritual introspection. It is quite popular in today’s culture and is practiced by tens of thousands of individuals regularly.
It’s popularity stems in part from the fact that it is a holistic practice that focuses on the well-being of the body as well on the soul, and recognizes the sacred connection between the two. Go to any Yoga class, and they will explain to you that it is more than any old exercise routine. The poses in any routine are designed keeping in mind the spiritual foundation of the practice, and aims to create a balance with your surroundings.
