Yoga has originated from the sanskrit word ‘Yog’ meaning union. It’s both an art and a science of merging your body, mind and soul together to attain the ultimate goal of enlightenment. The practice originated in India about 5,000 years ago and has been adapted in other countries in a variety of ways.
