Originating in India and believed to have been developed around the sixth and fifth centuries BC, yoga has been slowly integrated into the Western world and is now a popular form of exercise, known primarily for improving flexibility, strength and posture. Each yoga pose focuses on a different muscle, building strength all over your body and increasing your bodily awareness. Yoga means "Unity" and "Harmony", in Sanskrit the word "Yoga" is used to signify any form of connection. The breathing techniques required to master the art of yoga have a relaxing, meditative effect and yoga has been proven to lower blood pressure and slow the heart rate, which is beneficial for people with high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke sufferers.
