YOGA

A big thanks to Baba Ramdev, yoga is a household name today. Everyone knows about it, everyone is talking about it, and everyone is doing it (maybe in their own unique way) but doing it anyway. Little do people know that Yoga in essence is one of the six Hindu philosophical school which include Samkhya, Nyaya, Vaisheshika, Purva Mimamsa, Vedanta and Yoga. It’s not just a practice, it’s a school of thought, a concept, and religion as well. The origins of Yoga go back to pre-vedic era, but it developed during fifth century, however, it wasn’t popular among commoners. During 1900 century, when spiritual leaders like Swami Vivekanand were travelling across globe and propagating Indian wisdom, Yoga gained popularity in west first and no matter how ironic it sounds, but like everything else it also came to India later, in a big way very recently and now is a common practice once again. Now, yoga doesn’t only include physical training but spiritual and mental aspects as well with meditation practices taking the front seat. And in today’s chaotic and stressful environment, its only logical. So, if you aren’t already a part of the movement; come forward, join and see the results for yourself.
