What is Yoga?

Dear Doctor: What is Yoga?

Dear Patient: Yoga means union but it also means a healthy body, balance mind and joyful and harmonious existence. Yoga is not what you can do but the quality with which you do something. It's not about being able to bend over and touch your toes or putting your leg behind your head, nor is it about standing on your head. Yoga is about being able to reach your toes so you can take care of your feet and everything in between. Yoga is about standing firmly on your own two feet (or one foot) and staying rooted in your intentions. Yoga is about developing the mental and physical strength so that you can remain grounded and balanced through the turbulence of life. Yoga is about finding freedom in your body and living a focused and inspired life.
