for me Yoga began as a path to spiritual enlightenment about 5,000 years ago in ancient India. It includes meditation techniques,breath control exercises, and a detailed set of ethical principles.It also involves a series of physical poses that have become popular in the West in recent years.Dancers have discovered yoga as a way to relax between technique classes, rehearsals, and performances while still maintaining flexibility and strength. Here several dancers explain how yoga benefits their bodies and their work.

I took yoga course before and it made me relax. And I have practiced it every day, from meditation to physical poses. It makes me clam down, and it makes my mind and soul refresh. I feel peaceful when the practice is done. I love yoga and will go ahead.
