"The unexamined life is not worth living" ~Plato
Yoga is not only physical poses, is also includes mental and spiritual practices. Yoga stems from ancient India, and in Sanskirit, Yoga: योग comes from the root word, yuj which means to yoke, or join together.
Patjanjali's Yoga Sutras is one of the oldest and most popular core Yoga texts, stemming from approximately the 4th Century BCE. Patanjali, a Sage, wrote what he had collected on Yoga from older writings.
In Yoga Sutra 1.2, Patanali writes yogas chitta vritti nirodhah
"Yoga is the calming down the fluctuations/patterns of consciousness"
