The origins of Yoga are Eastern and ancient, dating to several millennia BCE. Yoga, as practiced in the Eastern traditions, is more than a physical exercise. It has at its heart a meditative and spiritual core. Yoga as a technique is used to control the body and the mind. The physical postures of Yoga are used to alleviate health problems, reduce stress and make the spine supple. It is an integrative therapy in that it utilizes a meditative component to alleviate stress, thereby allowing the physical aspect of the exercises to be more impactful.
