    Yoga is an ancient Indian practice that helps to improve one’s physical, mental and spiritual well-being. There are many different types of yoga, each with its benefits. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, a text dating back to the 2nd century BCE, mentions the eight limbs of yoga, which are designed to help practitioners reach a state of inner peace and enlightenment. These eight limbs are:

    1. Yama – self-restraint or codes of behaviour

    2. Niyama – personal observances or habits

    3. Asana – physical postures

    4. Pranayama – breath control

    5. Pratyahara – sense withdrawal

    6. Dharana – concentration

    7. Dhyana – meditation

    8. Samadhi – absorption or union with the divine

    Yoga can provide many benefits, including improved flexibility, strength and endurance, better breathing, increased energy and concentration, and a sense of calm and well-being. It can also help to reduce stress, anxiety and depression. If you are interested in trying yoga, many different classes and resources are available, both in-person and online. You can also find helpful books and videos that will teach you the basics of yoga and help you get started on your practice.

    The earliest reference to Yoga is in the Rig-Veda, the oldest of the four Vedas.
