What is Yoga? Yoga is a method that integrates different physical techniques, breathing, relaxation and meditation for the 3 levels of the integral human being: physical, mental and spiritual. Developing a healthy body, a lucid mind and a creative spirit. The word derives etymologically from the root meaning yuj bind, join, join. In its specific meaning yoga refers to that vast body of technical precepts and spiritual growth in India for several millennia and is the culture of the Indian man. (Excerpted from book texts of yoga DeGeorge Feuerstein) The purpose of yoga is union, and re-link the human with the all, cosmos, universe, God. As every one wants to call from their belief. And gives us the freedom to adopt or take the techniques that we believe appropriate to our development, and the route will have many benefits physically, mentally and especially spiritually. Not forgetting that the purpose of yoga is samadhi or integration with God creative source. Namasté. OM Lokah samastah sukhino vavantú Shanti, shanti, shantih!
