Yoga originated thousands of years ago in India. This ancient practice strives to unite the body, mind, and spirit. In basic terms, yoga practice trains practitioners to reunite personal consciousness with universal consciousness.

Practicing yoga helps us to remember that both consciously and physically. In fact, the word "yoga" means "to bring or yoke together."
