A lot of people are aware of the importance of yoga, but only few are practising it consistently. This ancient practice, which originates in India, took place some thousand years ago. Yoga is specifically designed to help people to have a more positive outlook on life, as well as a focused, permanent sense of serenity and peace.
The meaning of the word yoga is "union" which is union with divinity. Many people who are not aware of this, see those practising it as a group of intensely athletic people putting their legs behind their heads. Yoga is more than that, and the benefits are very remarkable when practised consistently.
It is very important for everyone to know that yoga offers more than flexibility, and the idea of building a strong body. The interesting thing about yoga is that people with different body sizes, shapes, ages as well as abilities can practice it and adapt it perfectly, to fit their individual tastes and needs.
