What is the philosophy behind yoga?

The Philosophy of Yoga

Ancient Yogis used the image of a vehicle to describe man's place in a harmonious life. The mind is the driver of this vehicle. The soul is man's true nature. Three energies that make that mid-body "vehicle" move are action, emotion, and intelligence. For complete centeredness, these three energies must be in balance. Yoga, therefore, combines techniques in movement for physical health as well as breathing and meditation skills that bring mental health.
