Yoga is a broad church and one of the great legacies of Indian traditions. Today, yoga has adapted to the modern lifestyle and physical requirements of the Western mind and body.   Yoga techniques are practiced to reduce the effects of a sedentary working life, increase sport capability, create a fit, lithe body and rehabilitate from injury.  Although the Yoga postures are effective for maintaining and even restoring one’s physical health, the true power of Yoga lies in its capacity as a path to  happiness and inner freedom.
