As explained in the discourse when introducing Sankhya Yoga:
Yoga is means to rise. Yujyate Anena Iti Yoga (that which unites)
Vishaad = Shokha
So sorrow of Arjuna became the means to unite with God since he expresses sorrow to God!
Sankhya = knowledge
Sorrow was the problem for which Lord gave solution of knowledge
God is so close that the word close is superfluous since Lord is our own Self!
That supreme what you are searching for is you yourself. This knowledge becomes means to realize that and so it becomes yoga

The root of Sanskrit word 'Yoga' is Yuj, which means 'to join'. Nowadays, Yoga popularly denotes the physical exercise (Hatha Yoga) aspect of the Yoga science (Shastra).

What is being joined? The attempt by an individual to connect (join / unite) his/her lower self (Ego) to higher Self (God / Soul / Atman) is Yoga. The practices to do this is called Yoga Shastra.

So in the context of your question, each chapter is a way to achieve the union.

Refer to Pujya Gurudev's commentary after verse 47, Chapter 1 in Holy Geeta for more detailed understanding of this

Hari Om.

Yoga is a Sanskrit word derived from the Sanskrit root “yuj” which means to connect, join or balance.
The most important thing, however, is that Yoga – with its entire applications and implications – is a powerful means to an end. The ultimate end of all human pursuits is “Moksha.” Moksha is freedom from all bondage; freedom from insecurities; freedom from the clutches of desires; freedom from the sense of limitations and inadequacy; freedom from all that thwarts us on our divine journey in life. In other words, the end of all human pursuits is everlasting peace, happiness and a sense of fulfillment. This is possible with steady and prolonged sincere practice of Yoga. It activates a process of cleansing and purification of mind, which in turn, prepares us for the dawning of Self-knowledge. Yoga means this connection; this knowledge that removes the impurities and the veil of ignorance that keeps us strangers to ourselves. Yoga should never be mistaken for any other mode of exercise, which is operational only on a physical level. Yoga is a way of life; it is not removed from it. We do not need to feel disappointed or frustrated considering our limitations with regard to physical health; shape and size of the body; lack of time; lack of space or unavailability of a teacher. Yoga, in fact, is the means to overcome all these problems. Yoga includes every aspect of life. Yoga touches everything in life. All healing methods and meditations are part and parcel of Yoga. Yoga is like the sun itself, which brightens everything that comes into contact with it. Yoga is usually defined as union: union between the limited self and the Divine Self. The aim of Yoga is not really to unite us with anything for we are already united. It is to help us realize our identity with the Divine Self, to make us know and tune into our intrinsic nature. The Bhagwad Gita, a very widely known classical text on Yoga, gives various definitions of Yoga.
1. Yoga is equanimity of mind in success and failure.
2. Yoga is discretion in work.
3. Yoga is the remover of misery and destroyer of pain.Yoga is the supreme secret of life.
4. Yoga is serenity.
5. Yoga is the giver of infinite happiness.
