Yoga means "to yoke" or bring together and is an ancient holistic practice that unites mind, body and spirit. The practice of hatha yoga uses a series of exercises that provide a framework to learn mental balance and concentration along with physical stamina and flexibility. To accomplish this, yoga involves physical poses known as "asanas" and the use of breathing and meditation techniques. By attending regular yoga classes, students have time to focus on breathing and postures that improves their health and wellbeing.
