Yoga - History

Originating in India over 2 millennia ago, yoga truly is a remarkable and wondrous gift to mankind. Regarded as a philosophy, a science and an art, yoga in its purest form is a pure system capable of responding to the needs of humanity. The word Yoga is Sanskrit and means to join or yoke, implying the integration of every aspect of the human being. Incorporating the mind, body and spirit, the main goal of yoga is to restore the mind to simplicity and peace freeing it from confusion and distress.

Throughout the ages, different schools of yoga have taught and focused on different aspects, however all schools of yoga branch from same ideological foundation. This basis seeks to better the individual, but more broadly, humanity.

With time, and continuous practice, yoga will guide the student to a sense of peace and a feeling of being at one with their surrounds.
