What does Yoga mean?

Hey there Beautiful Souls;

Yoga means the union of spirit, mind and body, according to the texts of the Bhagavad-Gita and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

This philosophy of life teaches us that, through meditation, physical practice (what is known asanas), self-knowledge, service to others and devotion to God, we can achieve this union that is within each one of us, but that as we grow up it erodes, due to the experiences we face in life.

The United Nations decreed June 21 as the International Day of Yoga, a practice that began in India more than 5,000 years ago, and is currently performed on all continents.

Yoga continues to expand and fashion in the West, at a level that in 2016 alone in the United States it moved $ 16,000 in the industry related to classes, clothing, equipment and workshops, according to a study published by the Yoga Journal and the Yoga Alliance organization in 2020.

Likewise, the number of followers in the country went from 20.4 million to 36.7 million from 2012 to 2016, the research highlighted.

Yoga is for everyone, regardless of age, gender, weight, social class, or religion. You just need to have the willingness and desire to learn, breathe and a mat. This is a unique process where each person must be attentive to the limitations of their own body without getting discouraged, in addition to being patient with poses, since everything is progressive.
