Did you know?
The origins of yoga have been traced back to Northern India over 5,000 years ago. The word yoga was first mentioned in the Vedas, which are a collection of texts containing songs, mantras and rituals to be used by Brahmans, the Vedic priests. Yoga was slowly refined and developed by the Brahmans and Rishis (mystic seers) leading to the most renowned of the Yogic scriptures the Bhagavad-Gîtâ, composed around 500 B.C. Central to this was the 3 principles of Karma (generous actions), Bhakti (caring dedication), and Jnana (knowledge). In the 6th century BC Siddharta Gautama studied the teachings of yoga and is said to have experienced total enlightenment at age thirty-five.
Yoga found its way to the Western world in the beginning of the 1800’s but It wasn’t until the 1930’s that yoga was practiced and followed due to its healthy, vegetarian belief system. In the 1960 Transcendental Meditation became popular to practice and Yoga schools were opened in America & Europe. The modern principles of yoga in the West evolved from here – Savasana (relaxation), Asanas (exercise), Pranayama (breathing), Diet, and Dhyana (positive thoughts) as well as Meditation.
