Aim of Yoga is the attainment of the physical, mental and spiritual
“Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.”
Gym & Yoga both are good for health. Yoga is good for good from top to bottom of our body & mind. Where gym is very good for only physical body.
