Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual discipline that originated from India. It is a way of attaining peace and stable spirituality by meditating. Yoga is a Sanskrit word meaning “union” which is the union of mind, body and soul.

Some people make yoga as a form of a workout. By stretching and doing complicated poses, you increase your flexibility, improve muscle endurance and help circulate the blood. With that, it is gaining more and more popularity in the western world.
