What is yoga?

Yoga is a timeless spiritual practice. The earliest known text, the Bhagavad-Gita (Song of God) dates back five thousand years. The word yoga is from the Sanskrit word yuj which means union. Yoga is union with all of creation. It is union between the individual self and the Eternal Self. Ancient scripture teaches that joy is our birthright. It is also the nature of God. In yoga practice we learn to still the mind, to create balance in the body and to open to our natural state of joyfulness
