Yoga has its origins in the Vedas, the oldest records of Indian culture. The great Indian sage Patanjali who described a series of postures or Asanas, which the student gradually tries to attain, systematized it. Maharishi Patanjali rightly called as the "Father of Yoga" compiled and refined various aspects of Yoga systematically in his "Yoga Sutras" (aphorisms). He advocated the eight-fold path of Yoga for the all-round development of the human personality.

Yoga is a system of exercises for the physical & mental well being. It combines different poses with deep breathing exercises and meditation. The term yoga itself is derived from a Sanskrit word meaning 'to join together'. The ultimate aim of yoga it to unite the human soul with the universal sprit Yoga was developed about 5 thousand years ago.

According to Patanjali, within the human body there are channels called Nadi & centres called chakra. If these channels & centres are tapped, energy hidden in the body can be released. This energy is called kundalini. Each posture or asana exercises some of the muscles of the body and combinations of these asanas can provide you with a complete physical and mental workout routine.

The eight stages of yoga stated by Patanjali

  • The yama (universal moral commandments)
  • Pratyahara (withdrawal of mind from external objects)
  • Samadhi (state of super consciousness)
  • Asana (posture)
  • Pranayama (breath control)
  • Dhyana (meditation)
  • Dharana (concentration)
  • Niyama (self-purification through discipline)

Besides the different stages in yoga, there are various forms of discipline touching different aspects of human life. These disciplines include

  • Hathyoga (physical exercise)
  • Dhyanayoga (exercise for the mind & intellect)
  • Karmayoga (disciplined action in daily life)
