Everything in life is about balance. From your body (Homeostasis) to the universe. Balance and harmony are peace of mind. If the mind is peaceful the body is peaceful. If you are at peace with yourself, you will be with the world around you.
Yoga means to unify. The communion and union of mind, body, and spirit within the present moment. Through yoga one realizes they do not have a life but that they are life. One understands that one is not IN the moment but IS the moment.
The word 'Yoga' is derived from the Sanskrit root 'Yuj', meaning 'to join' or 'to yoke' or 'to unite'. As per Yogic scriptures the practice of Yoga leads to the union of individual consciousness with that of the Universal Consciousness, indicating a perfect harmony between the Spirit, mind, body, Man & Nature.
