  1.  No It originated as long as 10,000 to 5000 years back. It has gone through much evolution and was handed down orally. The reference to alcoholism has been found when excavations were made from the Indus valley - an strong and powerful civilization from the first period that was antique. This civilization developed around the Sarasvati river and the Indus river in northern India, on the boundary towards Pakistan and had sewer systems, baths as ancient as 2,600 BC.
  2.  While many religions continue It goes to all of us to want to create yoga their very own creation. It has many facets which is seen in the Hindu and Buddhist faith, but the fundamental principals are worldwide and based on"the eight limbs of yoga", which can be found in all religions.
  3.  The History of Yoga is described as four phases:
  4.  Vedic Pre-Classical Period Period, Classical Period, Post Classical Period and the Modern Stage
  5.  History of Yoga
  6.  Yoga Is reported to be as old as civilization itself but the transmission of this practice, has left several openings in its history. Earliest archeological evidence relating to yoga's presence is found in Mohenjodaro seals excavated from the Indus valley, constituting a figure seated in a conventional yoga pose. The rock seals place Yoga's existence around 3000 B.C.
  7.  The Vedic Period
  8.  The next Reference yoga is found in the Rig Veda, the oldest text in the world. The Vedas, dating back to 1500 and 1200 BC, are a collection of hymns, mantras and brahmanical rituals which praised a greater being. Yoga is referred to in the publication as yoking or subject without any mention of a method or a practice to achieve this discipline. Yoga is too mentioned by the Atharva Veda using a reference to controlling the breath.
  9.  Pre-Classical Period
  10.  The creation of the Upanishads, Between 800 to 500 BC, marks the period known as Pre-Classical Yoga. The term Upanishad means to sit implies that the only way a student could learn the truths was by sitting near.
  11.  The Maitrayaniya Upanishad summarized a six-fold route to liberation. This six-fold yoga path included controlling the breath (pranayama), withdrawing the senses (pratyahara), meditation (dhyana), concentration (dharana), contemplation (tarka), and absorption (samadhi). Patanjali's Yoga Sutra was later to mirror these paths with greater elucidation and a few additions.
  12.  Two yoga areas Gained prominence now: karma yoga (course of action or ritual) and jnana yoga (path of study or knowledge of the scriptures). Both paths resulted in enlightenment or liberation. The Bhagavad-Gita, written around 500 BC afterwards included the bhakti yoga (the path of devotion) to this path.
  13.  It had been at the time of the Upanishads that the Notion of Ritual sacrifice became the idea of sacrifice of the self through action, self-knowledge and wisdom and was internalized. This remains an important part of the philosophy of yoga today. As with the Vedas, the Upanishads comprised nothing of what we'd term as yoga asana practice. The first and probably most important demonstration of yoga came in the phase.
  14.  Classical Period
  15.  Written some Time Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, in the century created a landmark in the history of yoga, specifying what is currently called the first period. This pair of 195 sutras (aphorisms) is considered to be the first systematic demonstration of yoga, also Patanjali is revered as the father of yoga.
  16.  https://yoga-world.org described the route of yoga (ashtanga yoga), which described a practical treatise on living and laid a path for attaining stability of the mind, soul and body. Strict adherence to that would lead one to enlightenment. The sutras nevertheless function as a principle for living in the world, although contemporary yoga sees the necessity.
  17.  Post-Classical Period
  18.  It Was the belief of the body as a temple had been revived and yogis made a clinic to prolong life and to rejuvenate the human body. It was no longer necessary to escape reality; instead the focus was more alive in the moment and about the right path. The quest of the halves and the spiritual and the need to harmonize the mind, body and soul led to Hatha yoga in the tenth or ninth century, and to cleanse the body and brain.
  19.  Contemporary Period
  20.  Yoga in its present avatar owes a lot To heard gurus who researched and generated schools of yoga, or traveled west to disperse the benefits of yoga. Back in 1893 Swami Vivekanada talked about Raja yoga and addressed the Parliament of World Religions in Chicago. Swami Sivanada wrote a few books on philosophy and yoga and introduced the five fundamentals of yoga. J.Krishnamurti, the prolific Indian philosopher, influenced thousands with his writings and teachings on Jnana yoga.
  21.  Day yoga's defining epicenter practiced in the west, began in 1931 Mysore India, with Krishnamacharya.
  22.  T The Hatha yoga college opened in the 1920s. Three of Krishnamacharya's most famous pupils were-Pattabhi Jois, who developed the college of Ashtanga vinyasa yoga, Indra Devi who introduced yoga to Hollywood, and B.K.S. Iyengar, who created Iyengar yoga known for its attention to body alignment and for its use of props.
  23.  Since Then, many yoga gurus are becoming pioneers, finding new styles in keeping with the changing times and popularizing yoga.
  24.  Yoga in America has been More concentrated on the practice's Asana facet, but a yogi knows There is far more to the encounter. I advise students Styles and you will find one that provides the maximum to you enrichment.
