Yoga is a holistic way of healthy life and living with its cultural roots in ancient Indian scripture, handed down to us in the form of Living Tradition.
Yoga focuses on developing integration between thoughts, words, and deeds of an individual that, in turn, helps in establishing harmony between self and his/her surroundings.
