This Hindu discipline focuses on training the consciousness for a state of perfect spiritual insight.

Yoga is made up of varying positions, poses, breathing exercises, meditation, and muscle stretches. The focus is on teaching balance and achieving personal tranquility through a system of poses and postures, such as inversions, core strengthening poses, twists, and standing yoga poses. The origins of pre-classical yoga can be traced back to the Upanishads, which were written between 1000-5000 BC. But exact dates and origins are largely unknown. This spiritual ritual involves a mat, the appropriate clothing, and some intense concentration. Looking for a yoga instruction class near you?
