Touching on the History of Yoga

The History of Yoga has a lot to do with the present times. The earliest Yoga started some 5000 years ago since human civilization begun. The scholars have believed that Yoga was originated out of Stone Age Shamanism.

This is because there were some cultural similarities between Mehrgarh which was a Neolithic settlement and the Modern Hinduism. The shamanistic culture of Mergarh was in fact influenced by Hindu principles, symbols and rituals of the present. The ancient shamanism and early Yoga had so much similar for the reason both wanted to go beyond the human condition.

Shamanism's principal goal was to heal the members who were in their community and at the same time act as the religious mediators.

Archaic Yoga also had the same objectives as they were community oriented and they aimed to establish the enormous order through senses and inner vision which then can be applied to our daily lives.

As time went on, Yoga has progressed and has regarded the inmost occurrence. Yogis then have been persistent on trying to improve the individual explanation, recovery and salvation.

Yoga's evidences were first tracked in the archaeological evidence which was found in stone seals that were dug up from the Indus valley. Yoga postures were traced and seen from the figures which were illustrated in the stone seals. The artefacts were placed on History books circa 3000 B.C., which was linked to the great Indus-Sarasvati Civilization which was known to be the largest civilization that existed in the ancient world. The Indus-Sarasvati, being a nautical society, exported goods all over Africa and the Middle East. They build up sewage systems and put up geometrical brick roads and constructed multi-story buildings.

The Vedas are known as the oldest scripture in the world which were the earliest texts, and was brought by the Indus-Sarasvati civilization. It was a collection of hymns that commends a high power which included the oldest recorded tradition in Yoga. They have considered this the divine revelation. The intelligence of the Vedas was known as the Pre-classical Yoga or the Vedic. This was described by the ritualistic ceremonies that the Yoga practitioners have required in order to go beyond the boundaries of the mind. The history of yoga would not have been completed in the classical stage of yoga. After the time and turn of the millennium, yoga and its spread in different forms have come up with the need for standardisation. This is significant so that the people will be aware of it and can be applied by them. Due to this, during the second century, C.E., Patanjali composed and collected seminal text that was the Yoga-Sutra, which had defined the Classical Yoga.

At the age of Postclassical Yoga in the enormous history of Yoga, it gave rise to some industrious literature, which included the Tantra and the Hatha that are famously known these days. They were taught in schools for Yoga and practiced by many. Therefore, post classical Yoga is described to the adaptation of our present state. It is the time when yoga has evolved very much and introduced to people. It has then been applied in the United States since the 1800's.

Now in the recent decades, yoga has greatly and speedily evolved. Swami Sivananda was one of the prominent gurus ever to master yoga. He has served as a doctor and he has generously opened up schools in Europe and America.

Now as we move on with the yoga practices that we have today, it is much helpful and easier to understand if we looked back on the history of yoga.
