Yoga is an-encompassing system of self-improvement that aims at obtaining a healthy body and a strong, positive mind. Yoga teaches us how to control and elevate our emotions and reactions to life’s events. We learn to amplify all that is good in us and transform that which is limited or painful. The ultimate goal is to become aware of our unlimited potential and true divine identity.
