General Purpose: To Inform
Specific Purpose: By the end of my speech the audience will understand the different types of yoga and what they are used for.
Thesis Statement: The art of yoga is a very complex technique that teaches one correct breathing exercises, uses meditation techniques, and provides an outlet for any emotion through physical activity.
Introduction: The real meaning of yoga is a deliverance from contact with pain and sorrow, -Bhagavad Gita. Bhagavad Gita is a very old Indian text and became very prominent in Hindu tradition. This text is a message of spiritual wisdom; the name meaning Song of God. The word yoga derives from the Sanskrit term yui meaning to join. Generally yoga is the joining of the body and the mind. While I do not do yoga for any religious reasons, I quite often use yoga as a stress reliever and a form of meditation. In addition to these uses, I also will use yoga to relieve migraines, ease back aches and anxiety, and even use other types for a nice workout! With my speech audience members and myself will demonstrate various yoga poses and techniques. In addition to this I will teach about the do's and don't's of yoga, the various uses, and the history behind yoga!
