Yoga translated from Sanskrit means “unite” and “to control”. Yoga is in its broad context a Hindu philosophy that teaches the mind to control the feeling and the body, in order to attain the union with God. In a more everyday, Western concept, yoga means hatha yoga. This is a branch that consists of a system of exercises to gain control over the mind and especially the body. In the west there is only a significant focus on the practice of yoga since the last half of the twentieth century. Usually it involves relaxation exercises from hatha yoga, which are experienced as beneficial in tensions built up by a hectic life. The main form of physical yoga is hatha yoga, which for the first time was amply documented in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika in the 15th century AD. In the West, yoga is seen as conducive to health and is often practiced without religious intentions. Hatha yoga consists largely of asanas (body postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques). The hatha yoga forms the basis for many other, further developed types of physical yoga.
