Community on Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda and Spirituality

Yoga or Yog comes from the Sanskrit term yuj and means to join or unite. Yoga as we know it today has taken up many diverse forms. You might have heard of vinyasa, macro, aerial, Bikram and bhakti yoga. The foundational and traditional type of yoga is called Hatha Yoga. Let’s look at the history of yoga and find out where it comes from: The early writings about yoga were passed onwards on palm leaves. The development of yoga can be traced to around 5000 years ago. It is very likely that yoga was first mentioned around 8000 years ago. Have you heard of the Vedas? The Vedas are four ancient texts written about 5000 years ago: Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Ayur Veda and Atharva Veda. The word yoga was first mentioned in the Rig Veda. The Indian sage Patanjali shared his knowledge about yoga in the Patanjali Yog Sutras 2000
years ago. The Sutras provide a philosophical approach to overcoming human suffering. In the Patanjali Yog Sutras, you will learn how to gain mastery over the mind and emotions. The 196 Sutras (threads) advise on how to grow spiritually towards enlightenment. During a Yoga Teacher Training in India, you will not only learn practical aspects of yoga, but also study in-depth the philosophy and history of yoga.
