Yoga is the journey

The word 'Yoga' is derived from the Sanskrit root 'Yuj', meaning 'to join' or 'to yoke' or 'to unite'. The word “Yoga” essentially means, “that which brings you to reality”. It is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice that originated in ancient India. Sage Patanjali is called the father of yoga. It refers to the state of union or communion with God, one's true Self or Higher Power. The central focus of yoga is not the soul and not the body—it is the mind. A mind which stands between the soul and the body. Whatever we do is an expression of who we are. You may be conscious of it or maybe unconscious of it. But still, everything you say, everything that you do is essentially an expression of who you are. So yoga, in that way is opposite to this because it's not an expression of who you are it’s about determining who you are. It’s about determining what you want to be. So, yoga as a process, yoga as a method, yoga as a technology, yoga as a science is essentially to break the limitations of a certain concretization that happens, which we call as personality. So there are many ways or asanas, of which we will know more about in upcoming blogs.
