Some people come to yoga to stengthen and stretch the body and to relax and calm the mind. While others find that through the practice of yoga they begin to explore the body and mind connection.
Yoga is not a religion and can be practised by all faiths and none.
The ancient Sages and Rishis who gave us yoga philosophy and now modern science agrees that everything (including us) is vibrating energy expressing itself in different forms. So really we can say that everything is already in union.
Yoga is about coming back to a state where we exist fully in the awareness of union. In yoga we call this our true nature.
