Today in the 21st century we are faced with various global challenges for humanity and many other health issues such as debilitating chronic illnesses, and disorderly lifestyles which are continuously haunting the life of one and all and unfavorably affecting the balance of human life. It’s a hard time to reconnect with our roots to find a stable and permanent solution and it can only be possible through YOG. Yoga is not just a gesture or posture only rather it's a way of living, an art of managing life. Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice or discipline which originated in India. Yoga in Daily Life is an arrangement of practices consisting of different levels of development in the areas of physical, mental, social and spiritual health. When the body is physically healthy, the mind is clear, focused and stress is under control. This gives the space to connect with loved ones and maintain socially healthy relationships. The word “Yoga” originates from Sanskrit and means “to join, to unite”. Yoga exercises have a holistic effect and bring body, mind, consciousness, and soul into balance. The main goals of "Yoga in Daily Life" are Physical Health, Mental Health, Social Health, Spiritual Health, Self-Realization or realization of the Divine within us. These goals are attained by Love and help for all living beings, respect for life, protection of nature and the environment, a peaceful state of mind, pure thoughts and positive lifestyle, physical, mental and spiritual practices. Yogic techniques are known to improve one’s overall performance. Pranayama is an important, yet little known part of Yoga. Until recently, this art and science of yogic breathing were almost completely unknown to the common man like many other ancient Indian arts.
