No One knows exactly how old yoga is. It originated. It has gone evolution that was much and had been passed down orally. YogaWorld to Yoga was found when archeological excavations were made from the Indus valley - an strong and influential civilization from the early period. This culture had sewer systems as ancient as 2,600 BC and developed around the long gone river and the Indus river in northern India.

While many religions continue It goes to all of us To wish to make yoga their creation. It has several facets which can be seen from the Hindu and Buddhist religion, but the basic principals are universal and according to"the eight limbs of yoga", which are available in all religions.
The History of Yoga is defined as four periods:

Vedic Period Period, Classical Period, Post Classical Period and the Modern Period
History of Yoga

Yoga Is said to be as old as civilization itself but that the oral transmission of the clinic, has left several gaps in its foundation. Earliest archeological evidence relating to yoga's existence is found in Mohenjodaro seals excavated from the Indus valley, depicting a figure seated in a yoga pose. The stone seals place Yoga's existence around 3000 B.C.

The Vedic Period

The following Reference yoga is located in the Rig Veda, the earliest text in the world. The Vedas, dating back to 1500 and 1200 BC, are a group of brahmanical rituals and hymns, mantras that praised a larger being. Yoga is referred to in the publication as discipline or yoking with no mention of a clinic or a method to achieve this subject. The Atharva Veda too mentions yoga using a reference to controlling the breath.

Pre-Classical Period

The Introduction of the Upanishads, Between 800 to 500 BC, marks the interval known as Pre-Classical Yoga. The term Upanishad suggests that the only way a student could learn the truths in the texts was by sitting close to a professional and means to sit near.

The Maitrayaniya Upanishad summarized a six-fold route to liberation. Patanjali's Yoga Sutra was to mirror these avenues with increased elucidation and a few additions.

Two yoga disciplines Gained prominence at this time: karma yoga (course of ritual or action ) 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 added the bhakti yoga (the path of loyalty ) for this route.

It had been in the time of the Upanishads that the idea of Ritual sacrifice was internalized and became the idea of sacrifice of the ego through self-knowledge, action and wisdom. This remains an important part of yoga's philosophy today. Much like the Vedas, the Upanishads contained no matter what we'd term as yoga asana practice now. The most important and probably first presentation of yoga arrived in another period.

Classical Period

Written some Time in the second century created a landmark in the history of yoga, defining what is currently called the first period. This pair of 195 sutras (aphorisms) is considered to be the first systematic presentation of yoga, and Patanjali is revered as the father of yoga.

Patanjali defined yoga's route (ashtanga yoga), which described a practical treatise on living and laid out a path for attaining harmony of the mind, body and soul. Strict adherence to that would lead one to enlightenment. But yoga sees the necessity the sutras function as a guideline for living in the world.

Post-Classical Period
It Was the belief of the body as a temple was rekindled and yogis designed a practice to rejuvenate the body and also to prolong life. It was no more necessary to escape from reality; instead the focus was more living 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 cleanse the entire body and mind, and also to Hatha yoga in the tenth or ninth century.
Modern Stage

Yoga in its present avatar owes lots of To learned gurus who researched and created distinct schools of yoga, or traveled west to spread the benefits of yoga. In 1893 Swami Vivekanada addressed the Parliament of World Religions at Chicago and talked about Raja yoga. Swami Sivanada introduced the five fundamentals of yoga and wrote a few books on philosophy and yoga. J.Krishnamurti, the Indian philosopher, influenced tens of thousands with his teachings and writings on Jnana yoga.

The epicenter of modern daytime yogastarted in 1931 with Krishnamacharya, Mysore India.

T The very first Hatha yoga school was opened by krishnamacharya in the 1920s.

Since Then, a lot more yoga gurus have become pioneers, popularizing yoga in keeping with the times and finding new fashions. Now there are infinite styles of yoga, all based on components from different paths of yoga (see: The Paths of Yoga).

Yoga in America has been More concentrated on the practice's Asana facet, but a real yogi understands There is more to the experience. I advise students to test You and Various styles will find one that gives the maximum to you enrichment.
