“Through yoga one can know the true meaning of happiness and the reality of this world by expanding one’s consciousness.”
What is yoga? Yoga was originated in ancient India, it is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices and disciplines. The word yoga is derived from the Sanskrit verb: knowledge = Samadhi, to unite. So yoga means to unite. Referring to the merging of the individual consciousness with the universal consciousness. Creating a union between body and mind or body, mind and spirit. Another meaning of the root word yoga is Samadhi, which is a state in which the aspirant is one with the object of his meditation, the supreme spirit pervading the universe, where there is a feeling of unutterable joy and peace. Yoga is more of a mental state, a state of awareness.

One can discover higher truths that lie within, silently helping people and their manifestation of divine. Yoga helps you improve physical, mental and functioning healths.
