?Yoga is not only about Asanas, It is much more. It is a blend of Gyan (Knowledge), Karma (Work) and Bhakti (devotion). Once an individual develops interest in Yoga and starts diligently practicing it, it will always remain a part of his or her life. Yoga is the entrance point to one?s spiritual journey.?
