Sanskrit for "to unite" yoga joins spirituality to the physical. Breathing and maintaining postures is the most common form, Hatha which means sun and moon.
I practice a small bit of yoga daily, my most important poses, triangle and upward and downward dog. Years ago I religiously attended a class were Kundalini was practiced. Which seemed the same to me as Hatha, but Kundalini is the practice linked with chakras and spine movement as well as meditation. It's all good. Acceptance, patience, and the breath.
I suppose I should illustrate the poses I like the most, but above seated twist, proud warrior and child's pose are all very beneficial.
