What is yoga?

It seems that everyone today is doing yoga. Is yoga actually a sport? A religion? A tradition? Opinions are divided. What is certain is that yoga is very old: many thousands of years before Christ was already practised. The word yoga comes from the Sanskrit and means something like ‘uniting’. In short, you can say that this is also the philosophy behind yoga. Yoga aims to unite everything in your body: body, mind and soul.

Yoga gives you inner harmony and balance.
