Yoga In India
Yoga (Sanskrit योग; pronunciation) is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India. Yoga is one of the six orthodox schools of Hindu philosophy. Yoga gurus from India later introduced yoga to the West,following the success of Swami Vivekananda in the late 19th and early 20th century.In the 1980s, yoga became popular as a system of physical exercise across the Western world.[Yoga in Indian traditions, however, is more than physical exercise; it has a meditative and spiritual core. Many studies have tried to determine the effectiveness of yoga as a complementary intervention for cancer, schizophrenia, asthma, and heart disease so it is vey important to know about Indian culture to learn yoga. Yoga in India with cultural and spiritual knowledge will give you a pure and positive feeling.
