What Is Yoga?
Yoga is an ancient practice that was developed 5,000 years ago. But, the text many yogis follow today, The Yoga Sutras, was written 2,000 years ago by a sage named Patanjali.
It was practiced in India before it was brought to America by a few people who visited yoga ashrams. There are many types of yoga that are practiced today, but they all stem from Hatha Yoga.
