Despite, or perhaps because of, yoga's booming popularity, misconceptions abound about this ancient practice, which originated more than five thousand years ago in India. The word "yoga" comes from the Sanskrit word yuj, which means to "yoke" or "unite," and the practice is designed to unify many things. At the most basic level, yoga helps unite the body and mind. At a deeper level, yoga unites the individual with the universal.
