Yoga is basically a profound control dependent on an incredibly unobtrusive science, which centres on bringing congruity among psyche and body. It is a craftsmanship and science of sound living. The word 'Yoga' is gotten from the Sanskrit root 'Yuj', signifying 'to join' or 'to burden' or 'to join together'. According to Yogic sacred texts the act of Yoga prompts the association of individual cognizance with that of the Universal Consciousness, showing an ideal agreement between the psyche and body, Man and Nature. As indicated by current researchers, everything known to mankind is only an appearance of a similar quantum atmosphere. One who encounters this unity of presence is said to be in yoga, and is named as a yogi, having achieved a condition of opportunity alluded to as mukti, nirvana or moksha. Along these lines the point of Yoga is Self-acknowledgment, to beat a wide range of sufferings prompting 'the condition of freedom' (Moksha) or 'opportunity' (Kaivalya). Living with opportunity in varying backgrounds, wellbeing and agreement will be the principle destinations of Yoga practice.
