Yoga

(From the Sanskrit word for "union" or "oneness") is a personal self-help system of health care and spiritual development.  Its founders were working in India about 2,000 years ago.  This approach to becoming one with life involves meditation; postures or asanas, known as Hatha yoga; service to others, known as Karma yoga; devotion and love, known as Bhakti yoga; a vegetarian diet; and breathing methods that help calm the mind and body.
