What Is Yoga?

"The word "Yoga" is derived from the Sanskrit root "yuj" which means to bind, join, attach and yoke, to direct and concentrate the attention in order to use it for meditation. Yoga, therefore, is the art which brings an incoherent shattered mind to a reflective and coherent state.  It is the communication of the human soul with Divinity."

"First, Yoga deals with health, strength and conquest of the body. Next, it lifts the veil of difference between body and mind. Lastly, it leads the (practitioner) to peace and unalloyed purity."
