An ancient system of postures and exercises, Yoga originated in India - as a sister science to Ayurveda - about 5,000 years ago. Yoga helps to boost strength, flexibility and breathing to improve physical and mental well-being to achieve a higher state of consciousness.
Today, Yoga has gained immense popularity across the world. It is now taught in schools, colleges, health clubs and even hospitals.
Most of the studies on Yoga indicate that it is a safe and effective way to improve physical activity, and hence increase one’s strength, flexibility and balance. A regular practitioner of Yoga can also attain mental and spiritual well-being.
Regular practice of yoga can resolve a range of health issues including aches and pains, high blood pressure, heart disease, depression and stress.
