Thousands of years ago, the Vedic people had started a physical practice for controlling the mind, body and soul. This physical practice is known as yoga. Yoga is the ancient art, science and philosophy of maintaining a balance between these three most important elements of a human being by synchronizing them in a single chord. Yoga has various forms such as Raja Yoga, Karma yoga, Bhakti yoga, Kriya yoga or Kundalini yoga which aim to connect the Atma with the Paramatma or the human soul with the Supreme soul.
