Chapter 1: What Is Yoga?
Time and again we hear the word yoga. Often people think it is some
sort of exercise with funny poses, right? The left leg stretches upwards
and the hand goes behind the body to hold the leg, no? But yoga is not
just about stretching, maintaining a posture, breathing or even merely
a form of exercise. It is much more than just that. It is a spiritual
practice but not a religious one that helps you to maintain a fine
balance between work and a healthy mind!
Not to worry, you are not the only one who doubts this! Many people
have questioned how something like this could help them to maintain a
balance between work and a healthy mind or even establish a healthy,
lively and balanced approach to life. And to understand this better and
to know how yoga actually works, you need to get a better
understanding of what yoga is all about.
