In reality, these are just two stages (number Three & Four) of an Eight-step practice that has been developed over thousands of years as a Systematic Approach to transformation on many levels. In essence, the Sanskrit term YOGA is derived from the root source of the word 'YUJ' which means Union. The English word 'to yoke' – to bring together – is derived from a Latin source which is related. The term Yoga can be understood on many levels.
