Yoga Is Union

A physical, mental, and spiritual practice or discipline, which originated in ancient India with the view of attaining a state of long-lasting peace of mind The True Self. The true self could be defined or seen as you Without ego, judgment, sorrow, hate, or envy. To be you in every present moment. With no filter of a point of view or opinion. To be you, and to be present. The term Yoga can be derived from two roots. To yoke, and to concentrate. Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras define it as “The stilling of the mind”.
