Is Yoga an Art?

I am reading a book written by Geeta Iyengar called Yoga a gem for women. As I was reading I came across the question is yoga an art?

Living is an art. Yoga enhances the quality of
 one's life. Hence it is an art. It lifts up one's
thoughts and enables one to face life's difficult situations happily
 and with equanimity; it teaches one to strive to
achieve a goal in life; to cultivate friendliness, concentration,
piety, contentment, joy, and to discard what is non-essential; to cultivate good habits
and to lead a righteous life. Yoga is disciplined action to
achieve and attain final freedom.
