Yoga is a total fitness program with a history dating back some 5,000 years. The word yoga comes from the Sanskrit root yug, which means to join together, or to yoke. Yoga is a method of integrating mind, body, and soul, with a goal of cultivating balance and harmony in one’s life. Yoga is a flexible practice allowing for individuals to tailor the teachings to suit personal needs and desires, and to create a practice that contributes to one's overall life experience.
