The word yoga means something different to many people. It’s quite diverse, and practitioners have different expectations when they start. That’s okay. Whether your goal is greater enlightenment, a more toned and well-developed body, or relief from disease, there’s yoga for you. Hopefully, this book will be a beginning guide for your journey to the wonderful world of yoga.
The philosophy of yoga has been around for 5,000 years. That’s an undeniable staying power. Yoga is not just an ‘exercise’ but a philosophy, a way of thinking rather than a religion. In ancient India, the word yoga meant union. It refers to a union of the entire self – mind, body, and spirit.
