Yoga can be defined in many ways. Yoga can refer to the process by which the Mind is directed to focus utterly on just one thing to the exclusion of all others and without getting distracted.
The Yoga Sūtras also tell us that the distractions experienced in the Mind will make the body restless, the breathing difficult and the Mind unpleasantly agitated but they can be eliminated by the practice of repeatedly fixing the Mind onto a single object. Then the Mind becomes still like a tree free from the disturbances of birds.
The object of the Mind's attention can be anything and it can be anywhere. It can be a sea shell, a secret sound we hear in our heart, an area of interest, an idea, or something that transcends our senses entirely.
