Hi , people work out in gym to maintain good shape and health, but yoga gives work out to your mind , most of the people dont have strong mind , strong mind can separate you from suffering ,when you become 3rd degree master you get great thinking power , just like Sherlock Holmes . Being a student in yoga is simple , but one life is not enough to become 3rd dergree master .. yoga was born in my birth place .. but I have no interest in it , I tried but I think its difficult to me , i always want to be bad...any way  good luck to you if you are trying .

Yoga literally means 'union' of the body, mind and spirit.

Thats what happens when you work one mindedly towards 'perfection'.

It's origin is actually rather dangerous spiritually. The poses were created to worship different "gods" like the sun, moon etc. Pilates is safe, similar as far as training, core and flexibility..minus the danger spiritually...

Yoga means "union" meaning uniting opposites, polarities so that we can come closer to a balanced state of mind and body. To do that, we combine movement and deep breathing. On the physical level, you feel your body stretching and strenghtening. On the mental level, you feel relaxed, yet alert. Yoga is not a religion or new age spritual practice. It's a daily practice that helps you get in touch with your body, sense of self and life.
