"The word Yoga means union and discipline. It is not a religion, it’s exploring your own spirituality by learning how to control your mind through exercising the body, breath and practicing concentration. Yoga is about learning to be present, living in the present moment—creating a union between mind, body and spirit." (a description that I've taken from a few websites)
As well as being a Self union, I love how yoga is a union of like-minded people... Union in being able to connect, explore, learn and grow with people who are dedicated to living life in awareness. An every day tool to positive conscious networking!
