Yoga as a way of life For most people yoga conjures up thoughts of people in tangled body bending shapes. The most famous position of these is most likely to be the image of a person sitting in the lotus position emanating a total peace with themselves and the world.
The word yoga can actually be translated as “union” or more defined as ” joining strands of the mind together”. So this image of the person practicing yoga in any body shape is most likely to be true, that they are at peace and exploring their inner self.
The ultimate goal of any yoga practitioner is to gain the ability to focus the mind on one single point or thought without allowing any distraction interfere with their transcendence into their innermost peace.
Yoga is a total physical discipline because it uses the body and breathing to develop self awareness. This self awareness brings great self confidence because every movement is a step nearer the ultimate goal of perfect well being and peace.
