The Background of Yoga - Where Can Yoga Come From?

Team info
DescriptionNo One knows exactly how old yoga is. It originated as long as 10,000 to 5000 decades ago. It has gone through much evolution and was passed down. The first reference to alcoholism has been discovered when archeological excavations were made from the Indus valley - an powerful and powerful civilization in the early antique period. This culture developed around the Indus river and the Sarasvati river in India and'd sewer systems, baths as ancient BC.

While religions continue It belongs to all people, to want to make yoga their own creation. It has many aspects which is found in the Hindu and Buddhist faith, 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 defined as four phases:

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

Yoga Is reported to be as old as culture itself but the practice's transmission, has left gaps in its history. Earliest archeological evidence concerning yoga's existence is found excavated from the Indus valley, depicting a figure seated in a yoga pose. The rock seals put Yoga's existence around 3000 B.C.

The Vedic Period

The next Reference to yoga is found in the Rig Veda. Even the Vedas, dating back to 1200 BC and 1500, are a collection of hymns, mantras and brahmanical rituals which praised a being. Meditation is known to in the publication as yoking or discipline to achieve this discipline. Yoga is too mentioned by the Atharva Veda with a reference to controlling the breath.

Pre-Classical Period

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

The Maitrayaniya Upanishad summarized a route to liberation. This six-fold yoga path 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 a few additions and greater elucidation.

Two yoga disciplines Gained prominence now: karma yoga (course of action or ritual) and jnana yoga (path of study or knowledge of the scriptures). Both avenues resulted in liberation or enlightenment. The Bhagavad-Gita, written around 500 BC afterwards included the bhakti yoga (the path of devotion) for this route.

It had been in the time of the Upanishads that the idea of Ritual sacrifice became the idea of sacrifice of the ego through action self-knowledge and wisdom and was internalized. This remains an important part of the philosophy of yoga now. Now as with the Vedas, the Upanishads contained nothing of what we would term as yoga asana practice. The first and probably most important demonstration of yoga came in the next phase.

Classical Period

Written some Time in the next century, Patanjali's Yoga Sutras created a landmark defining what is now known as 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 eight-limbed route (ashtanga yoga), which described a practical treatise on living and laid a path for attaining stability of the mind, body and soul. Strict adherence to which would lead you to enlightenment. The sutras function as a principle for living in the world, although yoga no longer sees the necessity.

Post-Classical Period
It Was the belief of the human body as a temple was rekindled and a clinic also to prolong life and to rejuvenate the body was made by yogis. It was no more required to escape from reality; rather the focus was living in the moment and on the path. The exploration of the spiritual and the halves and the necessity to harmonize body, the mind and soul led also to Hatha yoga at the century, and to cleanse the entire body and brain.
Modern Period

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

The epicenter of modern daytime yoga, as practiced in the west, started in 1931 Mysore India, with Krishnamacharya.

T The Hatha yoga school was opened by krishnamacharya in the 1920s. 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, and B.K.S. Iyengar, who created Iyengar yoga known for its attention to body alignment and because of its use of props.

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