What is Yoga?
The term Yoga comes from the term “Yuj” which mean union. And the union is what yoga seeks, the union between the body, the soul, the mind, with oneself and with the universe. This discipline has its origin in India, and it has many variations. It aims to help the individuals reach that self-knowledge that permits answering fundamental questions such as who we are, and what´s our purpose on life. Meditation is the basic tool that allows reaching such answers.
