Yoga means to link oneself with God by concentrating the mind on Him and controlling the ever-disturbing senses. By the practice of yoga one gradually becomes free from materialistic attachments. When one is free of materialistic attachments one loses interest in the body and becomes interested in spiritual perfection.

Yoga includes different practices depending on ones level of spiritual advancement, and can be compared to a ladder for attaining the topmost spiritual realisation. The complete ladder is called yoga and may be divided into 3 main parts: Karma, Jnana, and Bhakti.
