The word „Yoga“ is derived from the Sanskrit root „Yuj“, meaning to join, to unite. It is a system of breathing exercises, physical and spiritual disciplines, all originally designed to bring the yogi to samadhi – the state of enlightenment. As yoga offers a holistic approach to life, its teachings can be very valuable to modern society. In ordinary western school you do not learn what to do if you feel fear, anger or frustration. You do not understand what they are or where they come from. You do not know what it is to eat really healthy. You do not learn what it means to keep your body in good shape and physical health and why that also is important for your mental wellbeing
