Yoga is an ancient Indian discipline whose goal is to improve the body, understand the mind and free the spirit. The word yoga comes from the Sanskrit root Yuj, which etymologically means "integration." Yoga offers a number of routes known as the "Marga", which can adapt to the personality and attitude of each individual, and aim to bring to the true knowledge of one’s self being.
Among the most common routines of yoga, there are the Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing techniques), band (closures) and mudras (gestures).
The numerous physical and psychological benefits of practicing yoga include helping the body to become lean, dry, vigorous, energetic, tonic, elastic and youthful. It also relaxes the nervous system, helps to improve the circulation, and allows internal organs to be more oxygenated which will consequently make everything seem to work better.
The practice of yoga not only helps to increase discipline, strength and self-control, but at the same time allows you to cultivate awareness, relaxation and equanimity. Originally, yoga was not conceived for curative purposes, however, nowadays there are numerous scientific studies that demonstrate its high therapeutic value.
