No It originated. It has gone through evolution and was passed down. The reference to Yoga was discovered when excavations were made from the Indus valley - an powerful and powerful civilization from the period. This culture had sewer systems, baths as early BC and developed around the river and the Indus river in India.

While religions continue It belongs to all of us, To wish to make yoga their production. It has several aspects that can be found from the Hindu and Buddhist religion, but the basic principals are worldwide and based on"the eight limbs of yoga", which can be found in most religions.
The History of Yoga is described as four phases:

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

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

The Vedic Period

The following Reference to yoga is located in the Rig Veda. The Vedas, dating back to 1500 and 1200 BC, are a collection of hymns, mantras and brahmanical rituals which praised a being that is larger. Meditation is known to in the book as yoking or subject without any mention of a method or a practice to attain this discipline. The Atharva Veda mentions yoga to restraining the breath with a reference.

Pre-Classical Period

The Introduction of the Upanishads, Between 800 to 500 BC, marks the interval known as Pre-Classical Yoga. The term Upanishad intends to sit near and implies that the only way a student could learn the truths in the texts was sitting near.  outlined a six-fold route to liberation. Patanjali's Yoga Sutra was later to mirror these paths with elucidation and a couple of additions.

Two yoga areas Gained prominence now: karma yoga (path of ritual or action ) and jnana yoga (path of knowledge or study of the scriptures). Both paths led to liberation or enlightenment. The Bhagavad-Gita, written around 500 BC later 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 became the notion of sacrifice of the ego through wisdom, action and self-knowledge and was internalized. This remains an significant part the philosophy of yoga today. Now, Much like the Vedas, the Upanishads contained no matter what we'd term as yoga asana practice. The first and probably most important presentation of yoga came in the period.

Classical Period

Written some Time Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, in the century produced a landmark in the history of yoga, defining what is currently known as the first period. This set of 195 sutras (aphorisms) is regarded as the first systematic demonstration of yoga, also Patanjali is revered as the father of yoga.

Patanjali defined the eight-limbed path of yoga (ashtanga yoga), which explained a practical treatise on living and laid a path for attaining stability of the mind, soul and body. Strict adherence to which would lead one. The sutras function as a guideline for living in the world, although the need is no more seen by yoga.

Post-Classical Period
It Was that the belief of the body as a temple was rekindled and a clinic to rejuvenate the human body and to prolong life was made by yogis. It was no more required to escape reality; rather the focus was alive in the moment and on the path. The quest of the spiritual and the bodily halves and the need to harmonize the mind, body and soul caused the production of Tantra yoga, to cleanse the entire body and brain, and to Hatha yoga at the ninth or tenth century.
Modern Stage

Yoga in its present avatar owes a lot To learned gurus who traveled west to spread the benefits of yoga, or researched and created distinct schools of yoga. Back in 1893 Swami Vivekanada talked 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, influenced tens of thousands with his teachings and writings on Jnana yoga.

Modern day yoga's defining epicenter , as practiced in the west, started with Krishnamacharya, Mysore India in 1931.

T The very first Hatha yoga school started . Three of Krishnamacharya's most famous pupils 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 focus on body alignment and for its use of props.

Since Then, a lot yoga gurus have become pioneers, popularizing yoga in keeping with the times and locating new fashions.

Yoga in America has been More concentrated on the Asana side of the clinic, but a yogi understands There is more to the experience. I advise students You and Various styles will find one that gives the most to you enrichment.
