She defines Yoga as a word that comes from the ancient Sanskrit language which means Union. Yoga is not only physical exercises which a lot of people tend to think when they hear the word. Yoga is a practice to bring union in the body, mind and spirit. The origin of Yoga comes from ancient India; it is a holistic way of creating balance in life and is not linked to any religion. Yoga improves the flexibility, strength, posture and body alignment, digestion, blood circulation and immunity system.
