Hello Friends,

Generally put, yoga is a disciplined method utilized for attaining a goal. The ultimate goal of Yoga is moksha though the exact definition of what form this takes depends on the philosophical or theological system with which it is conjugated. Bhakti schools of Vaishnavism combine yoga with devotion to enjoy an eternal presence of Vishnu. In Shaiva theology, yoga is used to unite kundalini with Shiva. Mahabharata defines the purpose of yoga as the experience of Brahman or Ātman pervading all things.In the specific sense of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, the purpose of yoga is defined as citta-vṛtti-nirodhaḥ (the cessation of the perturbations of consciousness).

Thanks and Regards,
Lucy James

Yoga is the keystone term of a profound worldview and grasping its meaning is essential to understanding Kripaluís mission and activities as a cohesive whole. In Yoga, the body, breath and mind are seen as a union of these multi-dimensional aspects of each and every human being.Yoga is an approach to life that values appropriate effort, based on balance and harmony within each person and with each other.

The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word "Yuj" meaning to yoke, join or unite. This implies joining or integrating all aspects of the individual - body with mind and mind with soul - to achieve a happy, balanced and useful life, and spiritually, uniting the individual with the supreme.

In India, Yoga is considered one of the six branches of classical philosophy and is referred to throughout the Vedas - ancient Indian scriptures and amongst the oldest texts in existence.The Upanishads are also broadly philosophical treatises which postdate the Vedas and deal with the nature of the "soul" and universe.

Yoga is nothing just stress relieving practice that involves stretching, controlled breathing, and relaxing the mind. The poses yoga is popular for are used to stretch particular muscles and focus ones energy and thoughts in order to relax.
