let’s start are the very beginning

  • Yoga is around 5,000 years old & means “union – a joining or a marriage” of mind & body
  • All yoga comes from Hatha Yoga and if it doesn’t, it is not yoga!
  • Hatha Yoga – Ha “sun” & Tha “moon” – equaling balance
  • There are 84 Hatha yoga postures
  • Bikram yoga is a sequence of 2 breathing exercises and 26 postures, taken from the original 84 Hatha postures.
  • The practice of yoga is to improve concentration – calm body, calm mind – in order to live each day out to our full potential.
  • What Yoga isn’t: a diet, deprivation or a religion.
