The purpose of Yoga is to unite the mind, the body, and the spirit. The mind and the body are one, and if we are given the right tools and taken to the right environment, we can find harmony and the body can heal itself. Yoga therefore is considered therapeutic. It helps you become more aware of your body’s posture, alignment and patterns of movement. It makes the body more flexible and helps you relax even in the midst of a stressful environment. This is one of the main reasons why people want to start practicing yoga – to feel fitter, be more energetic, be happier and more peaceful.
