It is an awakening of long deep rooted memories of whom and what we really are! Yoga, as union, implies perfect harmony of body and mind. It implies the harmonious integration of personality. The most common benefit of Yoga practice is the sense of wellbeing at all levels of our existence. Yoga involves a holistic approach to healing and wellbeing and integrates healing with the culture, diet, environment and tradition.
Yoga practices have shown to reduce physiological signs of mental stress, both in normal persons and in those with abnormally high levels of stress.

All over the world, many sadhaks practice only Yogasanas in the name of Yoga.
