The word Yoga stems from the Sanskrit language, in which the sacred scriptures of Hinduism are composed. It means "union" but it also means "discipline." Combining these two connotations, we can define yoga as the discipline that leads to inner and outer union, harmony and joy. 


There are many different types of Yoga, all stemming from a variety of ancient spiritual practices in India. The tradition most westerners identify with is called

*Hatha-Yoga.It involves physical postures (called asana) as well as breathing exercises (called pranayama).

Hatha-Yoga is primarily a means for obtaining spiritual fulfilment.

It also has the side effect of creating a healthy body and a peaceful mind. This form of Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years throughout India, and there have been many different interpretations of it throughout the centuries. 

In recent years, roughly since the late 19th century, various Yoga masters have made their way to the West and have shared their interpretations of Yoga with various western students. These students went on to establish Yoga institutes throughout the United States and Europe.

Hence, there are schools that teach Kripalu Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Bikram Yoga, Power Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, as well as many other styles.


All of these are called Hatha-Yoga, but each style is a different interpretation of the same thing.
