    There are many things which people undertake to maintain their health like walking, going to gym, doing exercises in outdoor open air environment and things like that.

    Now due to awareness yoga is also added to this list. Historically and mythologically yoga was undertaken by our saints and great yogis as a routine and in our Vedic and other mythological literature a lot of information is available about this ancient form of activity.

    How yoga is different from other forms of exercises. This is a question raisd by all beginners in yoga field, yoga seekers or yoga enthusiast. The answer is not very difficult if one tries to understand the philosophy behind this great art. Yoga is based on control of breath and movement of body parts in slow and steady ways and feeling this activity deep in our mind and detaching from all worldly matters for some time. What all this provides us is calmness of mind as well as exercise of body.

    The puja or worshipping God was also a supplementary part of the yoga exercise. By concentrating in puja one meditates in the world of spirituality, unseen world of dieties and isolates himself from the earthly engagements.

    The main thing achieved by yoga is concentration and peace of mind which is something not attainable with ordinary exercises.

    Knowledge is power.
