Yoga is an age-old science made up of different disciplines of mind and body. It has originated in India 2500 years ago and is still effective in bringing overall health and well-being to any person who does it regularly. The word yoga is based upon a Sanskrit verb Yuja. It means to connect, to culminate, or to concur. It’s the culmination of mind and body or the culmination of Jiva and Shiva (soul and the universal spirit). It’s also a culmination of Purush and Prakriti (Yin and Yang). The term Yoga has a vast scope. There are several schools or systems of Yoga—Dhyana Yoga (Yoga through knowledge), Bhakti yoga (Yoga through devotion).
Karmayoga (Yoga through action), Raja yoga (Royal or supreme Yoga), and Hathayoga (Yoga by balancing opposite principles of the body). All of these schools of Yoga are not necessarily very different from each other. They are rather like threads of the same cloth, entangled into each other. For thousands of years, Yoga has been looked upon as an effective way of self-improvement and spiritual enlightenment. All these systems essentially have this same purpose; only the ways of achieving it are a little different for each of them. In its most popular form, the term Yoga has come to associate with the last of these systems, which is Hatha yoga. For this article, too, the term Yoga is used with the same meaning. Although, when it comes to the Philosophy of Yoga, which is at the end of this article, the term Yoga will have a broader scope.
