Yoga a lot more than poses to strengthen and relax the body. The word ?Yoga? is derived from the Sanskrit word word ?yuj? meaning ?to unite? or ?to integrate?. Yoga is an ancient knowledge system that is about the unification of mind, body and spirit. ?The yogic science is not about a yoga class that you go through about how to bend your body ? which every new born infant knows ? or how to hold your breath ? which every unborn infant knows. This is the science of understanding the mechanics of the entire human system.? -- Sadhguru It is believed that the history of yoga dates back more than 15,000 years to the Adiyogi the first Yogi ?Lord Shiva? and his transfer or knowledge to the Saptarishis (the seven sages) on the pious occasion of Guru Purnima.
