No One knows how old yoga is. It originated as long as 10,000 to 5000 years back. It was handed down orally and has gone evolution. The earliest reference to alcoholism has been found when archeological excavations were made from the Indus valley - an wonderful powerful and influential civilization from the early period that was antique. This culture developed around the river that was long gone and the Indus river in northern India, on the border towards Pakistan and'd sewer systems, baths as ancient BC.

While many religions continue It goes to all of us, to want to make yoga their production. It has many facets which can be found from the Hindu and Buddhist religion, but the basic principals are worldwide and according to"the eight limbs of yoga", which are available in most religions.
The History of Yoga is defined as four phases:

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

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

The Vedic Period

The following Reference yoga is located in the Rig Veda. The Vedas, dating back to 1200 BC and 1500, are a collection of brahmanical rituals and hymns, mantras that praised a being that is larger. Yoga is referred to in the publication as yoking or subject without any mention of a procedure or a practice to attain this subject. Yoga is also mentioned by the Atharva Veda to controlling the breath with a reference.

Pre-Classical Period

The Introduction of the Upanishads, The term Upanishad means to sit near and implies that the only way a student could learn the truths was by sitting near to a professional.

The Maitrayaniya Upanishad summarized 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 avenues with elucidation and a couple of additions.

Two yoga disciplines Gained prominence at this time: karma yoga (path 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) for this path.

It had been at the time of the Upanishads that 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 the philosophy of yoga today. As with the Vedas, the Upanishads contained no matter what we'd term as yoga asana practice now. The first and probably most important presentation of yoga came in the next phase.

Classical Period

Written some Time in the century created a landmark defining what's currently called the first period. This set 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 the path of yoga (ashtanga yoga), which described a practical treatise on living and laid out a path for attaining stability of the mind, soul and body. Strict adherence to that would lead you. Although yoga no more sees the necessity the sutras serve as a principle for living in the world.

Post-Classical Period
It Was in this period that the belief of this human body as a temple had been rekindled and yogis made a clinic also to prolong life and to rejuvenate the body. It was required to escape reality; instead the focus was more alive in the moment and on the path that is correct. The exploration of the halves and the spiritual and the necessity to harmonize the mind, body and spirit caused the production of Tantra yoga, to cleanse the entire body and brain, and also to Hatha yoga at the tenth or ninth century.
Modern Stage

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