History of Yoga
The exact history and origin of yoga isn't certain but it is known that it originated from the East. It first began in ancient India to insure permanent peace. The practice first began around the sixth and fifth centuries BCE.

The literal term of yoga emerged from two roots: yujir yoga (to yoke) or yuj samādhau (to concentrate).
Yoga traditions first began in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.

Yoga didn't become popular to the western public until the mid-19th century. It was used a lot for exercise and endorsed by many celebrities. Yoga entered a popular boom in the 1980's when it was connected to heart health. In the last 10 years the amount of people practicing yoga has risen from 4 million to 20 million.
