Yoga is one of the six systems of Indian philosophy. The word ‘yoga’ originates from the sanskrit root yuj which means Union. On the spiritual plane, it means union of the Individual Self with the Universal Self. Yoga is the union of the body, mind, emotions and intellect. Sage Patanjali penned down this subject in his treatise known as Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

Questions and Answers
What is the relevance of yoga in today’s world?
B.K.S. Iyengar answer:
The practice of yoga helps anyone to gain good health, mental peace, emotional equanimity and intellectual clarity. With a healthy body, clear mind and pure emotions, the practitioner can learn to excel in his chosen career.
The first process of yoga is to open the ranges of inner being and live from there outward, governing our outward life with an inner light and force.
– Sri Aurobindo
