Yoga is a science as well an art of healthy living physically, mentally, morally and spiritually. Yoga is not a religion; it is a philosophy of life based on certain psychological facts and it aims at the development of a perfect balance between the body and the mind that permits union with the divine i.e. perfect harmony between the individual and the cosmos.

The four paths of yoga are Karma Yoga- the path of selfless service, bhakthi yoga- the path of devotion, Jnana Yoga- the path of knowledge and Raja Yoga- the path of controlling the mind.Yoga can be practiced by anyone regardless of age, sex and physical ability. In the modern world yoga and its different poses have been found to be a cure for many major diseases and ailments.

The key to any Yoga practice is the performance of yoga positions or yoga poses also called as asanas. Each of these yoga poses have specific physical and mental benefits. Asana is defined as "posture´┐Ż and its literal meaning is "seat." Originally, the asanas served as stable postures for prolonged meditation. Asanas or the yoga poses purify and strengthen the body and control and focus the mind. Asana is one of the eight limbs of classical Yoga.
