History of Yoga
The introduction of the magnificent term “Yoga” dates back over 5000 years ago. Beginning with the Vedic period and prevailing till date in the modern era, Yoga has emerged as an essential factor for healthy living and wellness.
Roots of Yoga
The roots of Yoga can be traced back to the Vedas, the Indian culture, ancient religious texts, and scriptures. The history of Yoga can also be traced to Buddhism as Lord Buddha himself emphasized the importance of meditation and inner peace in our lives. And the best way to attain inner peace is via Yoga.
The term Yoga itself is derived from the Sanskrit word “Yug” ( युग) which means “join” or “concentrate”. All in all, Yoga today and always has implied the unity of your strengths and powers at one place.
Evolution of Yoga in India
At different points of time, Yoga has evolved and shaped into what it is today. If we turn back the pages of the history of Yoga, we can actually find that it was divided into five prominent time periods.
- Vedic (the period of the Vedas) – the era of Vedic Yoga or Archaic Yoga.
- The pre-classical era during the time of Upanishads. It was recognized by karma Yoga, jnana Yoga (six fold Yoga path for liberation) and bhakti Yoga (for devotion).
- The classical era that was marked by Patanjali (known as the father of Yoga), the raja Yoga and the Yoga sutras.
- The post-classical era that was recognized by the teachings and preaching of Vedanta (the divine soul, harmony in religions and unity of mankind), Hatha Yoga (pranayama, Samadhi, and asana) and Tantra Yoga.
