Everyone seems to be doing it nowadays- be it the stars or your neighbourhood mom. Yoga is a term derived from “yoking” – the mind and body. This path to enlightenment winds back to ancient times, reinventing itself over the years. Yoga was little known in the western world till the Beatles and Mia Farrow journeyed to India to sit at the feet of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in 1968. Since then, yoga has endured constant evolutions of popular consciousness from spiritual cleansing to a kind of preventive medicine that helped manage and reduce stress. Today, it is seen almost as a fad or fitness wave.
