What is yoga?
The word yoga, from the Sanskrit word yuj, means to yoke or bind. It is a method of discipline which brings together body, mind and spirit.
Yoga is a tradition and a science with roots in ancient India that has evolved over centuries to embrace the wisdom of many places and times. Although it means something different to each individual, it is rooted in oneness or returning to the Source. Throughout history, it has been split into various 'schools' focusing on different aspects of yoga. Each branch is of the same tree, the tree of the Self.
The Indian sage Patanjali is believed to have collated the practice of yoga into the Yoga Sutra an estimated 2,000 years ago. The Sutra is a collection of 195 statements that serves as a philosophical guidebook for most of the yoga that is practiced today. It also outlines eight limbs of yoga: the yamas (restraints), niyamas (observances), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), pratyahara (withdrawal of senses), dharana (concentration), dhyani (meditation), and samadhi (connection to our infinite source)). As we explore these eight limbs, we begin to refine our behaviour in the outer world, and then we focus inwardly until we reach samadhi (experiencing liberation, enlightenment).
