Yoga

Yoga is a generic term for a number of physical, spiritual and mental disciplines that originated in ancient India. Yoga is actually one of the six schools of Hinduism. Yoga traditions are also found in Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism.

There are mainly two kinds of Yoga. One focuses on disciplining the mind, another concentrates on purifying the body and making it healthy. The latter is called 'hatha yoga'. Many yogic disciplines involve meditation and a number of postures called 'asanas'. People who have practiced yoga for a long time have reported improved mental health, musculo-skeletal strength and enhanced co ordination. Some yogic poses are very difficult and make take years to perfect, other are easy and even novices can do them.
