What is Yoga?

Yoga is an ancient science practiced for thousands of years. Though yoga offers many health benefits, it is much more than exercise: it is a comprehensive system designed to bring you to a place of deep and lasting happiness. It is not necessary to be flexible or strong to begin a yoga practice; an open mind and a willingness to explore your own experience is all that's required. By skillfully combining movement and postures with breathing, relaxation, and meditation techniques, yoga offers both practical and profound benefits to your life.
