No It originated. It has gone through evolution and was handed down. The earliest reference to Yoga was found when excavations were made from the Indus valley - an wonderful strong and powerful civilization from the period. This sophisticated civilization developed around the Indus river and the Sarasvati river in northern India, on the border towards Pakistan and'd sewer systems as early as 2,600 BC.

While many religions continue It belongs to all of us to want to make yoga their creation. It has several facets which is found from the Hindu and Buddhist faith, but the fundamental principals are universal and according to"the eight limbs of yoga", which can be found in most religions.
The History of Yoga is described as four periods:

Vedic Pre-Classical Period, Period, Classical Period, Post Classical Period and the Modern Stage
History of Yoga

Yoga Is reported to be as old as civilization itself but that the oral transmission of this practice, has left openings in its history. Earliest archeological evidence relating to the existence of yoga is found excavated from the Indus valley, depicting a figure seated in a yoga pose that was traditional. The rock seals put Yoga's presence around 3000 B.C.

The Vedic Period

The next Reference to yoga is located in the Rig Veda, the sacred text on earth. The Vedas, dating back to 1500 and 1200 BC, are a collection of hymns, mantras and brahmanical rituals that praised a being. Meditation is known to in the publication as yoking or subject to attain this subject. Yoga is also mentioned by the Atharva Veda to restraining the breath using a reference.

Pre-Classical Period

The creation of the Upanishads, Between 800 to 500 BC, marks the period called Pre-Classical Yoga. The term Upanishad suggests that the only way a student could learn the truths in the texts was by sitting close and intends to sit near.

The Maitrayaniya Upanishad outlined a six-fold route 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 couple of additions.

Two yoga areas Gained prominence now: karma yoga (course of ritual or action ) and jnana yoga (path of knowledge or study 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) for this route. had been in the time of the Upanishads the Notion of Ritual sacrifice was internalized and became the notion of sacrifice of the self through action self-knowledge and wisdom. This remains an important part of yoga's philosophy now. Now, as with the Vedas, the Upanishads comprised no matter what we would term as yoga asana practice. The first and most important demonstration of yoga came in the phase.

Classical 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.

Patanjali described yoga's route (ashtanga yoga), which described a practical treatise on living and laid out a path for attaining stability of the mind, body and soul. Strict adherence to which would lead you to enlightenment. But yoga sees the need to learn the eight limbs in series, the sutras nevertheless function as a guideline for living in the world.

Post-Classical Period
It Was that the belief of this human body as a temple was revived and yogis made a practice also to prolong life and to rejuvenate the body. It was no more necessary to escape from reality; rather the focus was more living in the moment and on the correct path. The quest of the bodily halves and the spiritual and the necessity to harmonize the mind, body and spirit led also to Hatha yoga in the tenth or ninth century, and to cleanse the body and mind.
Contemporary Stage

Yoga in its current avatar owes lots of To heard gurus who researched and created schools of yoga, or traveled west to disperse the benefits of yoga. Back in 1893 Swami Vivekanada spoke about Raja yoga and addressed the Parliament of World Religions in Chicago. Swami Sivanada wrote a few books and introduced the five fundamentals of yoga. J.Krishnamurti, the prolific Indian philosopher, influenced thousands with his teachings and writings on Jnana yoga.
