About Yoga

Sage Patanjali

Yoga is an ancient Indian spiritual discipline of great value for people today. The ultimate aim of yoga is kaivalya (emancipation). Tradition has it that yoga has been in existence since vedic times. However it was first codified by Sage Patanjali in his Yogasutra.

The yoga which Patanjali describes is ashtanga, meaning 8 limbs. The yoga postures (asanas) are one limb, pranayama (breath control) and dhyana (meditation) are among the others.



Whilst yoga’s ultimate aim is liberation it has many benefits along the way which can include:

  • increased vitality & well-being
  • enhanced flexibility & strength
  • better concentration
  • improved posture
  • self-confidence
  • mental & spiritual calm
