Yoga is an ancient Sanskrit word which essentially means "union." Yoga is the union of soul and Spirit. While yoga exercise is helpful, true yoga consists of the Eight Limbs of Yoga which are - Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi. When practiced faithfully and consistently, it leads to the liberation of the person to a greater spiritual awakening.
Technically, one who has attained this state of union is known as a yogi. However, in looser terms a yogi (male) and a yogini (female) are generally anyone who practices yoga as an exercise or as a way of life. Thus, yoga is the means to "union" as well as the state of "union." Regardless of your religious beliefs are lack thereof, yoga can be practiced by anyone. Science has already proven many of the benefits of yoga such as lower blood pressure, greater limberness, muscle strengthening, increased breath and lung capacity, calmer minds and better health.
