Yoga is one of the oldest physical disciplines in the world. It is over 5000 years old.

Yoga was introduced to America in the 18th century. Swami Vivekananda, a Bengali intellect, is responsible for introducing the practice of yoga and meditation to the people of Chicago, where his ideas were seen as new and revolutionary.

Yoga was originally practiced as a form of healing. Yoga is being introduced in to many medical centers as a complementary therapy alongside other treatments.

Yoga has become popular as a way of promoting physical and mental well-being. Although classical yoga also includes other elements, yoga as practiced in the United States typically emphasizes physical postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana).

If you can practice yoga 3 or more times per week, you will see significant improvements in your flexibility, range of motion, strength, balance, inner peace, and overall well-being.

Yoga can work every muscle in your body. People practice yoga for a whole number of reasons, to increase their flexibility, tone up, improve their posture. They also practice yoga for their mental wellbeing, to reduce stress and live more mindfully.
