History Of Yoga

The Practice of yoga began over 5,000 years ago in Northern India although some researchers say the practice goes as far back as 10,000 years ago. All in all, the Indus-Sarasvati people first developed Yoga.
"Yoga" was first mentioned by the oldest sacred text Rig Veda Which was used to collect texts that had rituals, mantras and songs used by Vedic priests. The word yoga was derived from the Sanskrit word yuj which means 'to yoke', 'to unite', or 'to join'. The translation makes sense because in those days (the pre-classical yoga era) yoga was only viewed as a means to unite the body with the spiritual realm.
After the pre-classical yoga era came the classical yoga era this new era was led and defined by the father of yoga himself, Patanjali's. Patanjali's yoga was presented by sutras, which were the first organized presentation of yoga. Here Patanjali systematized the practice of yoga into an eight-limbed path that was meant to guide people to exceed beyond the mind and achieve yogic freedom or Samadhi which means enlightenment.
