Yoga training is an ancient philosophy from India which has been practiced for many centuries.

It is very therapeutic, and in addition, it is a good form of exercise.

Although yoga has many benefits and purposes, all types of yoga have the general goal of creating unity between the mind, body and spirit. The reasons for taking part in this activity include various medical and other health reasons, as well as other reasons of personal interest. Various different exercises are involved, as well as a variety of poses and stretches. Meditation also plays a large role.

The internal organs will also be massaged, which is uncommon in many other exercise forms.
