Yoga (vir. योग) is a concept in Indian culture, in a broad sense, meaning the totality of various spiritual, psychic and physical practices developed in different directions of Hinduism and Buddhism and aimed at controlling the mental and physiological functions of the body with the goal of achieving an elevated spiritual and mental state. In a narrower sense, yoga is one of the six orthodox schools (darshan) of Hindu philosophy. The main directions of yoga are raja-yoga, karma-yoga, jnana-yoga, bhakti-yoga and hatha yoga. In the context of the philosophy of Hinduism, yoga is understood to mean the system of raja-yoga, set forth in Patanjali's "Yoga Sutras" and closely related to the fundamental principles of the Sankhya. Yoga is discussed in various writings of Hinduism, such as the Vedas, the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Shiva-samhita and Tantra. The ultimate goal of yoga can be completely different: from improving physical health and reaching moksha. Outside of India, the term "yoga" is often associated only with hatha yoga and its asanas - physical exercises, which do not reflect the spiritual and spiritual aspects of yoga. The one who studies and practices yoga is called a yogi or yogi. In 2016, UNESCO, noting the significant impact on numerous aspects of the life of Indian society in health, medicine, education and the arts, included yoga in a representative list of the intangible cultural heritage of mankind.
