The term Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word "yuj", meaning yoke or union. It can be seen as the teaching of uniting the opposites, such as mind and body, the feminine and the masculine, the individual self and the universal Self. Yoga is an ancient tradition that helps us to get into balance physically, emotionally, mentally and energetically. 

Yoga has a purifying and harmonizing effect on all levels and has a great potential to make us healthier and happier. The most beautiful about practicing yoga is that it gives us the possibility to be connected to our deepest essence. You learn to know yourself better and have more peace with who you are. 

Additional benefits from regular yoga practice include: increasing immunity, improving digestion, lowering blood pressure and heart rate, improving respiration and functioning of the circulatory system. Further yoga can reduce the influence of stress on body and mind and soothes the symptoms of anxiety, depression, fatigue and insomnia.
