There are many ways to practice and live yoga. The original science of yoga originated in India about 5000 years ago. As a holistic system of practice for the harmony and union of body, mind and soul.
In the course of time, different yoga styles and styles in different traditions developed in India. With the increasing popularity of philosophy in the West, even more new and westernized yoga styles have sprung up in recent years. Modern science also influenced the course of development, as it was more and more proven that the yoga exercises have a positive influence on health.
