The amazing thing about yoga is that your practice is always evolving and changing, so it never gets boring. Although the poses themselves do not change, your relationship to them will.
This is your body and your practice, and from that point of view comes the noncompetitive spirit of yoga; one of the most difficult, but ultimately most liberating things about yoga is letting go of the ego and accepting that no one is better than anyone else. Everyone is just doing their best on any given day.
In simple words, yoga is a fantastic system for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health; the postures of yoga lubricate the body and keep the muscles and joints running smoothly, tone all the internal organs, and increase circulation while the breathing increases prana, the life force energy.

Yoga brings union to our polarities like the yin and yang of the life force energy (ex. masculine and feminine aspect/ hot and cold/ calm and excited…).
