What is the purpose of Yoga?

Yoga is "Chitta Vritti Nirodha" Which is cessation of mind and its modifications.The way to reach the mind is through breathing. Body is simply the start to this whole process. The purpose of Asanas (Body exercises) is to prepare you for sitting still in one position for prolonged breathing exercises and subsequently for meditation...

Unfortunately, Yoga today is taught mostly as Asanas (Body exercises) around the world and the west embraced the Asanas (Physical postures) part of the Yoga. There is a very thin line of difference between yoga and gymnastics, circus & contortionists.
