All About Yoga: Poses, Types, Benefits, and More | Everyday Health

What is Yoga?

Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice that originated in ancient India. Texts for yoga are also found in the Buddhist, Hindu, and Jain traditions. The word yoga originated from the Sanskrit root yuj, which means “to yoke” or “to unite”. This makes sense since yoga attempts to unite the body, mind and spirt, while also connecting oneself to the universal consciousness. Many different styles of Yoga have been developed over the years, but most still focus on the sole goal of bringing the mind and body together.

Today yoga is focused on weaving together a series of poses and postures, this is called asana. Historical texts speak about varies forms of asanas, breathing exercises, meditation and tantra exercises, which mean to liberate one’s spirit (moksha). In Indian traditions yoga is mostly focused on more than just a physical exercise but to mediate and focus on the spiritual core. Outside of India the word “yoga” is associated with fitness, relaxation, and stress-relief. This modern-day yoga is meant to help improve strength, stamina, coordination, flexibility, and balance. As a whole this new yoga practice focuses on a rather small part of practice.
