Yoga is not a recent trend, nor is it a religion. Yoga is a systematic, ancient approach to health and well being. Yoga tones and relaxes the entire system while bringing the mind and body into perfect balance. The goal of Yoga can be summarized in three words: easeful, peaceful and useful. If you are physically easeful and mentally peaceful, then you will be useful to humanity. That is the aim of Yoga.
