Stressed lifestyles have become the order of the day in most cities. With lesser time to embrace the nature and seek physical and mental calmness, many take to Yoga as a regular regime. 
Yoga is not about escaping from a stressful routine, but it is the way to unite with one’s highest potential, one’s real self and thus, be empowered to face life with a calm mind and a positive attitude. The word ‘yoga’ comes from the Sanskrit term ‘yuj’ which means to unite. Yoga, thus, is the path to uniting with our true, creative, higher selves and with the Universal consciousness. Yoga offers not only physical benefits but mental health benefits for people of all ages.
