When people think of yoga, the earlier images may pop into their heads. They may think about “flower people” in the era of the 1960s formed in a circular position reciting weird chants and other noises. Yoga has been around and people have engaged in it for a long time.

In recent years, people are now using it to keep their bodies and their minds in shape. They also use it to explore themselves internally and to keep their minds level.
