WHY YOGA? Everyday, millions of people around the world practice yoga to improve their wellbeing. While the origins of yoga are debatable, there is no doubt that the benefits of this old tradition have survived the test of time over many centuries. The name literally means “to unite” reflecting the core yoga philosophy of uniting the wellness of mind, body, and spirit. Originating in ancient India hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years ago, the practice of yoga was popularized to the rest of the world over the past few decades. By separating the core values of mind and body fitness from the theological and religious aspects often associated with its origins, the practice of yoga became accessible to people of all backgrounds and traditions. The modern practice of yoga emphasizing discipline and control over body and mind fitness and aspiring to the wholesome wellness of the individual is a welcoming concept to all. The benefits of yoga, which have withstood the test of time over many centuries, have been verified by modern science in contemporary studies showing the value of yoga exercises for various present-day ailments such as low back pain, heart disease and depression.
