Yoga, which originated in ancient Indian Hindu culture, is the physical and spiritual practice of meditative movements, with the goal of attaining higher consciousness and enlightenment. * * * Yoga as a physical workout is often associated with Hatha yoga and its many "asana" postures. Pranayama (prana: life-force, ayama: to control) is the yoga belief that regulated breathing can increase physical and spiritual strength.
Practicing yoga exercises and posistions in workouts has shown consistent tangible results in medical literature.
