Millions of people practice Yoga. Yoga is now the fastest growing sport in America according to Yoga Journal magazine. They say that over 10 million people practice Yoga.

Sport? Yoga is a sport? No. Yoga is no mere sport. Yoga means "union." It is the joy of union of the individual self with the Self of All. It is pure consciousness, Purusha, which is complete unto itself. It is the union of Atman, the Self, and Brahman, the Absolute Reality. It is the union of Shakti, the feminine essence with Shiva, the masculine essence.

Yoga deals with relationships, senses, body, breath, mind and the union beyond. Yoga is complete. It is whole. It is integration. It is the highest bliss. Yoga is like the wave knowing it is not separate from the ocean. Yoga is divine union. It is not mere sport. Yoga is the path. Yoga is the goal.
