The word "Yoga" comes from the Sanskrit root "yuj,"
meaning to "bind, join, attach and yoke." Yoga, in its
original sense, is the joining or union of the individual self
the higher self. Through the practice of yoga, we combine postures

well-being. In the process, we reduce stress and acquire strength
and flexibility as we develop the physical, emotional, and spiritual
aspect of our being. Wear comfortable clothing.
