THE PRACTICE
Yoga is an ancient system of Indian philosophy. The word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj meaning union or to yoke or join. Through the study of yoga, the practitioner seeks greater union of the body, mind and spirit. Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years to bring a balance of strength, flexibility, relaxation and health to the student.
