This is a question I am asked more often than I can comprehend!
Yoga was created for both men and women in India over 5 000 years ago with the purpose of connecting human consciousness with the universal consciousness through physical activity. Yoga was designed to improve physical health, emotional health and spiritual health. Through repetitive movement, yoga focuses on flexibility and broad muscle groups while proving to be extremely therapeutic. Many types of yoga involve meditation and deep breathing, which aids in relaxation. The meditative part of yoga tends to attract people who are seeking a little extra mental health.
