We see the word wellness with increasing frequency, but what is it and how does it relate to yoga?

Through recognizing wellness as the original setting for all yoga practices, we can deepen and expand the  benefits of yoga, and awaken more of our whole human potential. Through learning an integrated approach to well-being rooted in yogic principles and practices, we develop a more fulfilling, humane way of life that also benefits those we connect with.
