‘Yoga’ is Sanskrit for ‘union’ and stands for the union of the individual soul with the universal soul, and of the body with the mind.
The Indian sage Patanjali is believed to be the Faher of Yoga. His Yoga Sutras collated about 2000 years ago serve as a guide for Yoga even today. They outline the eight limbs of yoga: yama (restraints), niyama (observances), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), pratyahara (withdrawal of senses), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation), & samadhi (liberation).
