The root for the word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word ‘Yog’ which means the Union. It means the Union of the Mind, Body and Spirit, also the Union of Oneself with the Universal Self. The holistic experience of Yoga emphasizes that this Union is necessary for a person seeking good health and wellbeing. Situated on the banks of River Ganga, Rishikesh (a.k.a.
