Originating in India, yoga has been around for centuries. The practice of yoga is to connect the mind, body, and spirit through practices or disciplines intending to promote a healthier lifestyle and inner peace. Yoga is not just about practicing the poses we most commonly see, but it is more of a lifestyle and a way of living.
Although it is unknown who is the actual originator of yoga, the Indian sage Patanjali is believed to have been a great advocator and collated the practice of yoga into the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali over 2500 years ago. This includes the Eight Limbs of Yoga which help us to live a more meaningful and purposeful life.
As mentioned above, there is so much more to yoga than just the poses (AKA asana). In order to connect the mind, body and soul - we have to remember to practice addressing the mind and soul, too.
Gates To Yoga focuses on bringing these practices to your daily life through Meditation, Movement, and Mindset.
