Yoga is understood by many people to be rather exotic style of physical training with perhaps a bit of meditation. Physical is only one of many Yoga aspects. There is great variety of approaches, methods and philosophies in practice by great number of schools. It is important not to limit ones understanding of yoga to just one or two better known Yoga practices. Literally yoga means "to unite" depending upon the school and it's philosophy. The meaning "to unite" is interpreted differently but the most common meaning is unification of body and mind. Yoga is method of holistic healing and spiritual development.
