 WHY YOGA??It's more than just a muscle exercise...  It's a practice; it's a life style...
Yoga...literal meaning is..."to join" or "to unite"

8 Limbs of yoga...I only learned this after 16yrs of practicing yoga (guess I'm a slow learner (actually never heard a yoga teacher mention the 8 limbs)). Truly is the most important part. Well...personally for me!

1. Yama...Five facets on how to relate to the external world.
  • a) Ahimsa-Non-violence,
  • b) Satya-truth, absence of falsehood,
  • c) Asteya-non-stealing,
  • d) Brahmacharya-we use our sexual energy to regenerate our connection to our spiritual self. Not use this energy in any way that might harm others,
  • e) Aparigraha- non-possessiveness, non-hoarding
2. Niyama...Five facets on how we relate ourselves to the inner world,
  • a) Shaucha-purifies our bodies, thoughts and words,
  • b) Santosha-, satisfied with what one has
  • c) Tapas-self-discipline, mind and body
  • d) Svadhyaya self-study-know yourself,
  • e) Ishvarapranidhana-surrender-trust god
3. Asana...84 classic Body postures. “The practice”

4. Pranayama...Focusing on the breath
5. Pratyahara...Withdrawal of sense from their objects
6. Dharana...Chitta-to be conscious
7. Dhyana... a "deeper concentration of the mind"
8. Samadhi...concentration-the mind becomes still 
Types of Yoga;
-Hatha-gentle-slower paced
-Vinyasa-breath with synchronized movement
-Ashtanga- is a fast-paced, intense style
-Iyengar- Holding traditional poses over long period
s-Kundalini- Breath + movement
-Bikram Yoga-HotAnusara
- Modern school of Hatha started by John French western approach Here are some super studios around Louisville...
There are more, but these I have some knowledge about.
