Yoga is a physical, the mental and spiritual practice originated in India and it is an invaluable gift to the world. Yoga embodies the unity of harmony between man and nature mind and body that is thought and action, restraint and fulfillment, a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and nature.
