Chapter One: Basics of Yoga

Yoga

Just as with every other activity and way of life, you need to learn about the basics of Yoga before initiating practice. The word Yoga literally means “to join together”. The togetherness of your mind and body in harmony is what yoga is all about. Yoga is more than five centuries old. Some of the basic and traditional techniques that are still extensively practiced are more than five thousand years old. Yoga is a form of exercise that encompasses your entire being. It involves exercise of your body, mind and soul. The creation of yoga was triggered by the desire for a healthy, long and prosperous life. The idea behind this unique exercise is to achieve a higher level of self-understanding and personal liberty. A practicing male is referred to as “Yogi” while a female practitioner is known as a “Yogini”. In modern times generally both genders are termed as Yogis.

The entire structure of Yoga is essentially based on three main elements of:

Exercise

Breathing

Meditation
