No It originated as long as 10,000 to 5000 years ago. It had been passed down and has gone through evolution. The first reference to alcoholism has been found when archeological excavations were made from the Indus valley - an strong and influential civilization from the period that was antique. This complex culture developed around the long gone Sarasvati river and the Indus river in northern India, on the boundary towards Pakistan and had sewer systems, baths as early as 2,600 BC.

While religions continue To wish to create yoga their creation, it belongs to all of us. It has several aspects that is found in the Hindu and Buddhist religion, but the fundamental principals are universal and according to"the eight limbs of yoga", which are available in most religions.
The History of Yoga is defined as four periods:

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

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

The Vedic Period

The following Reference yoga is located in the Rig Veda. Even the Vedas, dating back to 1200 BC and 1500, are a group of brahmanical rituals and hymns, mantras which praised a greater being. Meditation is known to in the publication as subject or yoking with no mention of a method or a clinic to attain this subject. The Atharva Veda too mentions yoga to restraining the breath using a reference.

Pre-Classical Period

The creation of the Upanishads, The term Upanishad implies that the only way a student could learn the truths in the texts was sitting near and intends to sit near.

The Maitrayaniya Upanishad summarized a path to liberation. Patanjali's Yoga Sutra was later to mirror these paths with elucidation and a couple of additions.

Two yoga areas Gained prominence at this time: karma yoga (path of ritual or action ) and jnana yoga (path of knowledge or study of the scriptures). Both avenues resulted in enlightenment or liberation. The Bhagavad-Gita, written around 500 BC afterwards added the bhakti yoga (the path of loyalty ) for this path.

It was in the time of the Upanishads that the idea 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 the philosophy of yoga now. Now, Much like the Vedas, the Upanishads comprised nothing of what we would term as yoga asana practice. The most important and first demonstration of yoga came in another period.

Classical Period

Written some Time in the century, Patanjali's Yoga Sutras created a landmark defining what is now called the Classical Period. This pair of 195 sutras (aphorisms) is regarded as the first systematic presentation of yoga, also 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, soul and body. Strict adherence to which would lead you. But modern yoga more sees the need the sutras serve as a principle for living in the world.

Post-Classical Period
It Was the belief of this human body as a temple had been revived and a clinic also to prolong life and to rejuvenate the body was designed by yogis. It was necessary to escape reality; rather the focus was alive in the moment and about the path. The quest of the physical halves and the spiritual and the need to harmonize the mind, body and spirit led to cleanse the entire body and brain, and to Hatha yoga in the tenth or ninth century.
Modern Stage

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

Modern daytime yoga's epicenter started in 1931 with Krishnamacharya, Mysore India. opened in the 1920s. Three of Krishnamacharya's most famous students were-Pattabhi Jois, who developed the college of Ashtanga vinyasa yoga, Indra Devi who introduced yoga to Hollywood, also B.K.S. Iyengar, who generated Iyengar yoga known for its attention to body alignment and for its use of props.

Since Then, many more yoga gurus are becoming pioneers, locating new styles in keeping with the times and popularizing yoga.

Yoga in America has been A yogi knows, although more concentrated on the practice's Asana side There is much more to the encounter. I always advise students Various styles and you will find one which provides you the most enrichment.
