Yoga is an ancient discipline that people have gravitated to as a source of physical fitness, mental well-being and spiritual renewal since its origination in India thousands of years ago. There are many styles of yoga, but each derives its healing benefits from a focused attention to deep breathing, mental clarity, and body positioning.
