Introduced by Saint Patanjali, yoga - a Sanskrit word - is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj and means "to control", "to yoke" or "to unite". It is a way of life, an art of righteous living or an integrated system for the benefit of the body, mind and inner spirit. This art originated, was perfected and practiced in India thousands of years ago, as can be seen from the references in 'Upanishads' and 'Puranas' composed by Indian Aryans in the post-Vedic period.
