Yoga’s primary focus is on general well-being. Using a holistic approach, Yoga teaches us to look at ourselves, and the world around us differently. Not just a system of physical exercises or stretches, Yoga emphasizes love, compassion, knowledge and right action as paths towards healing. By giving us the tools for self examination, Yoga helps us manage the stresses of everyday life with greater ease and can transform all aspects of our lives.
