Yoga dates back several thousand years originating in the Indian sub-continent and means to unite or to bind. In a yoga class students mainly study one of the eight parts of yoga called asana or postures.
The yoga postures promote good health in both body and mind. Although the body gains strength and flexibility through the practice of the postures, both the body and the mind are refreshed rather than left feeling exhausted.
