  1.  No One knows exactly how old yoga is. It originated as long as 10,000 to 5000 years back. It was handed down and has gone through evolution that was much. The reference to alcoholism has been found when excavations were made in the Indus valley - an strong and powerful civilization in the first classic period. This sophisticated civilization developed around the Indus river and the river in India, on the border towards Pakistan and'd sewer systems, baths as ancient BC.
  2.  While religions continue To wish to create yoga their creation, it goes to all of us. It has many aspects which can be seen in the Hindu and Buddhist religion, but the fundamental principals are universal and based on"the eight limbs of yoga", which can be found in most religions.
  3.  The History of Yoga is defined as four periods:
  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 culture itself but the oral transmission of the practice, has left openings in its history. Earliest archeological evidence relating to yoga's existence is found excavated from the Indus valley, depicting a figure seated in a yoga pose that was traditional. The rock seals place Yoga's existence around 3000 B.C.
  7.  The Vedic Period
  8.  The following Reference yoga is located in the Rig Veda, the earliest sacred text on earth. Even the Vedas, dating back to 1500 and 1200 BC, are a collection of brahmanical rituals and hymns, mantras which praised a larger being. Yoga is referred to in the publication as discipline or yoking without any mention of a procedure or a clinic to achieve this subject. The Atharva Veda mentions yoga to restraining the breath, with a reference.
  9.  Pre-Classical Period
  10.  The Introduction of the Upanishads, Between 800 to 500 BC, marks the period known as Pre-Classical Yoga. The word Upanishad suggests that the only way a student could learn the truths inscribed in the texts was sitting near to a guru and means to sit near.
  11.  The Maitrayaniya Upanishad outlined a path to liberation. This six-fold yoga course included controlling the breath (pranayama), withdrawing the senses (pratyahara), meditation (dhyana), concentration (dharana), contemplation (tarka), and absorption (samadhi). Patanjali's Yoga Sutra was to mirror these paths with increased elucidation and a few additions.
  12.  Two yoga areas Gained prominence at this time: karma yoga (course of action or ritual) and jnana yoga (path of study or knowledge of the scriptures). Both avenues led to liberation or enlightenment. The Bhagavad-Gita, composed around 500 BC afterwards added the bhakti yoga (the path of loyalty ) for this path.
  13.  It was at the time of the Upanishads that the Notion of Ritual sacrifice was internalized and became the idea of sacrifice of the self through self-knowledge, action and wisdom. This remains an significant part the philosophy of yoga now. Today Much like the Vedas, the Upanishads comprised no matter what we would term as yoga asana practice. The first and probably most important presentation of yoga came in the next phase.

  15.  Written some Time Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, in the century produced a landmark in the history of yoga, specifying what is currently known as the first period. This pair of 195 sutras (aphorisms) is considered to be the first systematic presentation of yoga, also Patanjali is revered as the father of yoga.
  16.  Patanjali described yoga's route (ashtanga yoga), which described a practical treatise on living and laid a route for attaining stability of the mind, body and soul. Strict adherence to that would lead you to enlightenment. But contemporary yoga no longer sees the necessity the sutras still function as a guideline for living in the world.
  17.  Post-Classical Period
  18.  It Was in this period that the belief of the body as a temple had been rekindled and yogis designed a clinic also to prolong life and to rejuvenate the body. It was necessary to escape from reality; rather the focus was living in the moment and about the right path. The exploration of the spiritual and the halves and the necessity to harmonize body, the mind and soul led to cleanse the body and mind, and to Hatha yoga in the tenth or ninth century.
  19.  Modern Stage
  20.  Yoga in its current avatar owes lots of To learned gurus who traveled west to spread the benefits of yoga, or researched and generated schools of yoga. In 1893 Swami Vivekanada spoke about Raja yoga and addressed the Parliament of World Religions in Chicago. Swami Sivanada wrote several books on philosophy and yoga and introduced the five principles of yoga. J.Krishnamurti, the prolific Indian philosopher, affected tens of thousands with his teachings and writings on Jnana yoga.
  21.  Day yoga's defining epicenter practiced in the west, started in 1931 Mysore India, with Krishnamacharya.
  22.  T Krishnamacharya opened the Hatha yoga college in the 1920s. 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, and 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 yoga professionals are becoming pioneers, popularizing yoga in keeping with the times and locating new styles.
  24.  Yoga in the Usa has been Concentrated on the Asana side of the practice, but a yogi knows There is more to the encounter. I always advise students You and different styles will find one that gives the most to you enrichment.
