The word ‘Yoga’ is derived from ‘Yuj’, which simply means to unify or to join. Hence yoga is defined as ‘union’ i.e. union of the individual self with the cosmic self. In more comprehensive terms yoga denotes the techniques that lead to harmony between the inner self and its external environment, between thought and action, and between the world and individual.
For the diligent follower, Yoga offers simple tools that allow the seeker to attain and maintain a healthy body and when internalized also a healthy mind and a healthy attitude. Besides holistic health, yoga also facilitates the blossoming of the creative potential in the aspirant. When a keen seeker is searching for the right means to achieve his life’s calling, yoga becomes the light that guides his path and helps him attain the chosen goal.
