April 17, 2013 Where Did Yoga Originate From? Conclusion Yoga is a Hindu theistic philosophy which teaches the suppression of all activity of body, mind, and will in order that the self may realize its distinction from them and attain liberation. Yoga is also a system of exercises for attaining bodily or mental control and well-being. No one knows when yoga officially started, but we do know it was from 5,000 to 10,000 years ago. The earliest forms of yoga were found in India. Many pieces of yoga can be found in Hindu or Buddhist beliefs. But still the basic forms of yoga are found all around the world and are passed down through much evolution. Yoga helps clean your blood of waste material.
You are able to bring more oxygen to your body.
It trains you to loosen your muscles and joints that are typically ignored.
It gets your blood flowing as you warm-up.
You build muscle strength.
Yoga gets you to focus on remote parts of your body.
You improve your flexibility.
Yoga helps your posture.
It can help lower your blood pressure which is beneficial for those with heart diseases.
Yoga also helps you feel more clam and less stressed out.
You are also mentally clear. Postures Yoga is a very universal exercise for any person of any age at any place in the world, starting from as long ago as 10,000 years. There are many different types and styles of yoga at different levels of difficulty. There is also a variety of postures such as the downward facing dog or the warrior pose. In the United States alone about 16 million Americans practice yoga and spend $5.7 billion dollars total of yoga equipment. There is even yoga that you and your dog can do together, called doga. I personally find yoga very soothing or relaxing to my mind. I also feel more alert and awakened after practicing yoga. I would love to continue yoga in small segments throughout the rest of the year because I find it very beneficial of all students who correctly do the poses.
