Yoga comes from the root of ''YUJ" which means "to unite''; ''to join''. So, yoga is the union of the individual soul with the Absolute. Everyone can realise this union; can gain self-knowledge; if he/she is fully prepared, determined, desirous and the mind is made one-pointed; by doing the practices of asana, pranayama, mudra, bandha, shatkarma and meditation. ''Health is wealth. Peace of mind is happiness. Yoga shows you the way''- says Swamy Vishnu Devanandaji. The core principles of yoga are - proper asanas, proper breathing, proper relaxation, proper diet and proper attitude (life style). Those who follow this; for them, yoga is not a set of exercises; it is a ritual; every aspect of life. Such people always think positively, act properly, enjoy happiness and live peacefully.
