What is Yoga? (International Yoga Day)
Yoga is such an effective form of exercise, through which the balance is created not only in body parts but also in mind, brain, and soul. This is the reason that apart from physical ailments from yoga, mental problems can also be overcome. The word of yoga originates from the Sanskrit word ‘Yuj’, which means to connect.
There are basically two words of yoga, first- joining and second- samadhi. Until we can connect with ourselves, it is difficult to attain the level of samadhi. ‘Yoga is beyond religion, faith, and superstition. Yoga is a direct science. Is experimental science. Yoga is the art of living life. Yoga is a complete medical practice. A complete route is – Rajpath.
Types of Yoga
The last stage of yoga is called samadhi. It has been considered the king of all yogas because there is definitely a specialty of all types of yoga.
- Yama (swearing)
