Is yoga and meditation the same thing?

A lot of people aren’t really clear on the differences between meditation and yoga. We often hear people say “I’m meditating” or “I’m doing yoga.” Sometimes they are intending to suggest the same thing while other times they may be talking about drastically different things.

Isn't yoga, just a lot of stretching?

Yoga isn’t just stretching. It incorporates alignment, strength, and balance; all things that help to us become more powerful and aware people. Just like lifting tons of weight without stretching isn’t really too effective, stretching without the elements of strength (and alignment, and balance) won’t do anything for you.

Is yoga good for any age?

Yoga can benefit both the young and old. Whether you are 6 years of age or 60 years of age, yoga can enhance your life, both mentally and physically. A child can benefit from Yoga’s self-discipline and mental and physical dexterity. A senior citizen can benefit from the increased mobility, improved concentration and memory and much more.
