About Yoga


Yoga is an ancient science. Yoga means to ‘yug’ or to join the individual soul with the Universal Soul. However most of us don’t even know what ‘soul’ is and even the thought of a Universal Soul is beyond our imagination. There are many different texts all trying to explain the inexplicable. The Universal Soul may be referred to as Brahman, Paramatma, Consciousness, Universe, Life, God, The Absolute, THAT or Tat and many other names in different languages.
 
Yoga may be considered the science of religion, but it is not a religion as it follows no dogmas nor does it profess to be the only way. Yoga encourages religious practice but without blind faith and rather with continual inquiry and practice. People are all ultimately aiming for the same thing in life, peace, love and happiness, which is the experience of Truth.
