Yoga is the method and practice leading to the conscious union of the individual human being with the ultimate source and origin of his being.
It aims at the awakening of the egoic-self to the real Self through the process of Reflexive Self- consciousness, a state of transcendent Self-awareness which confers upon the beings who attain it certain powers of adequate response and capacities of stimulus assimilation.
Where physical exercise & body posture is included in Yoga, the inclusion is merely as an initial anchor around which the mental, psychological & spiritual practices evolve & develop. At a certain point, the physical body anchor is no longer required.
