What is Yoga?
Yoga is an ancient art, science, and philosophy that emphasizes performing one’s daily responsibilities with awareness, integrity, and compassion. From Sanskrit, the word “yoga” translates as union of the mind, body, and spirit. For many, that includes an ongoing practice of yoga postures, meditation and personal reflection. The practice of yoga illuminates the path of purpose called dharma helping us to orient towards health and happiness in the modern world.
