The history of yoga goes back at least 5,000 years, and some people claim it is nearer 10,000 years ago. It was first developed in Northern India and at this stage was a spiritual as well as a physical form of exercise, connected with both Hinduism and Buddhism. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, yoga was introduced to the Western world when Swami Vivekananda travelled to the United States. Others followed in the 1920s and 1930s, and by the 1960s yoga had become a very popular form of exercise in the United States and in Europe.
There are lots of different types of yoga. Hatha Yoga is often good for beginners, because you hold each position for a few breaths. In Vinyasa Yoga you change position much more quickly and you might get out of breath.
Yoga is good for the mind and body. Regular practice of yoga can help you to improve your balance and stamina. The breathing taught in yoga can help you to reduce stress and anxiety. There are lots of different possible breathing patterns you can do. Yoga also improves concentration and help you to sleep better, so it’s great for anyone who’s under pressure at work or in their studies.
To practise yoga, you learn a series of ‘postures’, where you put your body into different positions. The correct breathing is also important. However, yoga is really about more than just exercise.
