The main aim of the study was to investigate the concept and evolution of Yoga in our daily life because Yoga is a science of life. Yoga comes in one’s life at a certain point in time to provide awareness to question regarding the purpose of one’s existence. Yoga have maintained  that there is a state of complete fulfillment, but in order to reach that level of existence then has to  be continuity in the evolution  and experience of consciousness an our life is in a constant process of evolution. So there is a great need and a biological necessity  of yoga in today’s life because Yoga helps us in many ways when we  rely on life sciences like Anatomy, Physiology, Biomechanics , Psychology, Biochemistry etc and many more. Therefore in order to understand the broader concept of yoga we have to study the subject as:

-Yoga as a philosophy (says that we are in constant process if evolution)

-Yoga is an instrument of psychological transformation (says that yoga psychology is both                                     positive and normative science. It prescribe methods for enjoying sound physical and mental health and for promotion of the self)

-Applied yoga (says that yogic technique enables the practitioner to become master of his body, and mind, rather than a victim of his emotion and desire.)
