Today we could say that Yoga is a complete system of self-development in physical, spiritual, mental and social level.
Yoga means returning to ourselves. You learn your limits, expand your horizons, you can relax by being yourself. You find the time to remember who you are, something you forget when you entice the maelstrom of daily intense life.
The human mind tends to wander in thoughts in the past or in the future, while the human body is only at the present moment. The hatha yoga, a type of yoga that emphasizes the intensive and continuous exercise encourages body awareness, the return to the body and restores the mind to the present and all that exists is the present reality. Whenever we return to the present, we waive any load we carry internally.
