How Yoga is beneficial for Sports Persons
The word 'yoga' means "to join or Yoke together". It brings the body and mind together to become a harmonious experience. Man is a physical, mental and spiritual being; yoga helps promote a balanced development of all the three. Yoga is a method of learning that aims at balancing "Mind, Body and Spirit".
Yoga is then commonly taken as a system of physical education with a spiritual component, although the truth is the reverse: Yoga is a spiritual system with a physical component. The practice of asanas is yet only a small part of the complete system of Physical Culture & Education known as Hatha Yoga.
