Literally Yoga means union of existence or Harmony. It is derived from Sanskrit word “Yuj” which means to join or bind. Yoga is the total combination of body, mind and spirit or individual consciousness to universal consciousness (lower self to higher self) and its incorporation within our daily lives. When our bodily soul unites with the Supreme Soul or transcends to the enlightenment state, it is called yoga. Union of the lower self with the universal plane is also known as yoga.

It helps on all aspects (the physical, mental, social, vital, psychic, emotional and spiritual) of a person. It teaches us how to live, work, eat, drink, sleep, wake up, speak, think, play and enjoy in present life.
