Yoga can be spiritual and physical. Blend the two of those together and you have the combination of inducing relaxation, controlled breathing, and disciplined body exercises, which is the art of Yoga. Yoga comes from a Hindu teaching of meditation and recognizing the “core of oneself,” or the “spirit within”. The concept is to direct the thoughts on being in the moment. Taking away all negative energy, and feeding the peace and tranquility within our minds and bodies will reduce stress, tension, and anything that is beyond our control in our daily lives.
