Yoga - An Ancient Science

Yoga - An Ancient Science

The word yoga comes from Sanskrit and means "union" or "yoking". Yoga originated in India between 5000 and 6000 years ago as a science to help prepare the body and mind to function at their peak levels. Six major branches of yoga exist; some are more physical than others, some have more pronounced spiritual components.

For many practitioners, yoga is a way of life and includes careful attention to diet and to the spiritual and emotional dimensions of the self. But yoga can also be practiced simply for its physical benefits.

The discipline was introduced to the United States in 1893 at the Chicago World's Fair by a famous Indian sage, Swami Vivekananda. Its practice has spread to all parts of the country and yoga is now taught at many fitness centers, even Gold's Gym in Venice, California.
