  1.  No One knows exactly how old yoga is. It originated. It had been passed down and has gone through much evolution. The reference to alcoholism has been discovered when archeological excavations were made from the Indus valley - an powerful and powerful civilization from the early period. This complex culture developed around the river that was long gone and the Indus river in northern India, on the boundary towards Pakistan and'd sewer systems, baths as ancient as 2,600 BC.
  2.  While many religions continue It goes to all of us To wish to make yoga their very own creation. It has several facets which can be seen in the Hindu and Buddhist religion, but the basic principals are universal and based on"the eight limbs of yoga", which can be found in most religions.
  3.  The History of Yoga is described as four periods:
  4.  Vedic Post Classical Period, Pre-Classical Period, Classical Period, Period and the Modern Period
  5.  History of Yoga
  6.  Yoga Is reported to be as old as civilization itself but this practice's oral transmission, has left many openings in its history. Earliest archeological evidence relating to the existence of yoga is found excavated from the Indus valley, constituting a figure seated in a yoga pose that was conventional. The rock seals place Yoga's presence around 3000 B.C.
  7.  The Vedic Period
  8.  The next Reference yoga is found in the Rig Veda. The Vedas, dating back to 1500 and 1200 BC, are a collection of brahmanical rituals and hymns, mantras that praised a greater being. Yoga is referred to in the book as yoking or subject to attain this discipline. Yoga is too mentioned by the Atharva Veda to restraining the breath using a reference.
  9.  Pre-Classical Period
  10.  The creation of the Upanishads, The word Upanishad means to sit near and implies that the only way a student could learn the truths was sitting close.
  11.  The Maitrayaniya Upanishad outlined a path to liberation. Patanjali's Yoga Sutra was later to mirror these avenues with elucidation and a few additions.
  12.  https://yoga-world.org Gained prominence now: karma yoga (path of ritual or action ) and jnana yoga (path of knowledge or study of the scriptures). Both avenues led to enlightenment or liberation. The Bhagavad-Gita, composed around 500 BC later included the bhakti yoga (the path of devotion) for this route.
  13.  It had been in the time of the Upanishads the idea of Ritual sacrifice became the notion of sacrifice of the ego through action, self-knowledge and wisdom and was internalized. This remains an significant part yoga's philosophy now. Now as with the Vedas, the Upanishads comprised nothing of what we would term as yoga asana practice. The most important and probably first presentation of yoga arrived in the next phase.
  14.  Classical Period
  15.  Written some Time Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, in the century produced a landmark defining what's currently called the Classical Period. This pair of 195 sutras (aphorisms) is regarded as the first systematic demonstration of yoga, and Patanjali is revered as the father of yoga.
  16.  Patanjali defined the eight-limbed route of yoga (ashtanga yoga), which described a practical treatise on living and laid a path for attaining harmony of the mind, soul and body. Strict adherence to that would lead you to enlightenment. Although contemporary yoga sees the need to master the eight limbs in succession the sutras still serve as a principle for living in the world.
  17.  Post-Classical Period
  18.  It Was in this period the belief of this human body as a temple was rekindled and yogis designed a practice to prolong life and to rejuvenate the body. It was no longer required to escape from reality; rather the focus was living in the moment and about the path that is right. The quest of the bodily halves and the spiritual and the need to harmonize the mind, body and spirit led to the creation of Tantra yoga, to cleanse the entire body and mind, and to Hatha yoga at the tenth or ninth century.
  19.  Modern Stage
  20.  Yoga in its present avatar owes lots of To learned gurus who traveled west to disperse the benefits of yoga, or researched and generated different schools of yoga. In 1893 Swami Vivekanada spoke about Raja yoga and addressed the Parliament of World Religions in Chicago. Swami Sivanada introduced the five fundamentals of yoga and wrote several books on philosophy and yoga. J.Krishnamurti, the Indian philosopher, influenced thousands with his teachings and writings on Jnana yoga.
  21.  The defining epicenter of day yoga, as practiced in the west, started in 1931 Mysore India, with Krishnamacharya.
  22.  T The first Hatha yoga school was started by krishnamacharya . Three of Krishnamacharya's most famous pupils were-Pattabhi Jois, who developed the school of Ashtanga vinyasa yoga, Indra Devi who introduced yoga to Hollywood, also B.K.S. Iyengar, who generated Iyengar yoga known for its focus on body alignment and because of its use of props.
  23.  Since Then, many more yoga professionals are becoming pioneers, popularizing yoga in keeping with the times, and finding new fashions.
  24.  Yoga in the Usa has been A true yogi understands, although concentrated on this practice's Asana facet There is far more to the encounter. I advise students Styles and you will find one that gives the maximum to you enrichment.
