They are believed to be the highest beings as they have achieved the ultimate liberalization and their soul’s consciousness has met the universe’s consciousness. Yoga is different from other forms of exercise because other exercises involve rigorous movement of body whereas yoga involves slow movement of body which includes deep breathing. It strengthens the core.
