What is Yoga?

Answered by | Mimi Partha Sarathy, Founder & Senior Yoga Teacher

Verbal root “Yuj” of Yoga means ‘to connect’. The connection happens in stages from the more physical to the more subtle. This wonderful connection happens in stages.

The practice of Yoga first connects YOU with your body through Asana practice. This connection happens at a physical level and makes you understand your body.

It then connects YOU with your Breathe through the correct breathing while practicing Asana and then Pranayama. Breathing is the main component of Asana practice and correct breathing while practicing Asana is most important. You are alive because of your Breathe!

Regular Pranayama practice increases this connection.

Then the connection happens with YOU and your mind with Pranayama and Meditation Practice. The mind is subtle energy and can be understood well only if you understand your breath. Yoga is about directing the mind into a space of calmness and joy. And by connection with your Breathe, you can then connect with your mind and then give the mind the right direction.

And, finally, yoga connects YOU with your ‘Inner Self’, the very subtle self and makes you understand who YOU really are!
