What is Yoga? Benefits and why it is recommended
There are many prejudices surrounding the term YOGA today. Some believe that it is a set of physical exercises, others that it is only a mental discipline, others believe that in classes we just sit and breathe, and there are also those who believe that yoga is practised only by rubber people who perform all kinds of stunts in classes.
The truth is somewhere in all that, yoga is considered the entire system and practice that brings a person to a better, higher quality and healthier psycho-physical state. In its application, it uses the so-called physical exercises, asanas, breathing techniques known as pranayama, relaxation techniques, concentration techniques and meditation.
Yoga also includes techniques for cleansing the body and learning about the principles of living that help us maintain harmony and vitality.
