No, yoga is much more than a form of meditation. In fact many forms of meditation are subsumed within the universe of yoga. The word “yoga” means “uniting” in the sense of realizing the oneness of samsara, the realm of name and form, and nirvana, the absolute Reality. This process includes a number of disciplines: physical flexibility through special postures and movements, contemplative practices in both the mental and physical realm and philosophical insight through study and personal experience.
