Yoga merupakan bentuk latihan tubuh dengan banyak gerakan peregangan, serta cara sehat untuk menurunkan berat badan dan tubuh impian yang proporsional. The beginnings of Yoga were developed by the Indus-Sarasvati civilization in Northern India over 5,000 years ago. According to a study done in 2002 by the National Center for Health Statistics it was found that 16% of young people ages 6-19 are overweight. Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines physical poses, controlled breathing, and meditation or relaxation.
You have the patience of an enlightened monk in dealing with the overreacters of the internet… a true testament to the benefits of yoga. Rabi – Yoga and Hinduism share the same common roots, but that does not mean that Yoga is entirely a Hindu practice.” Your analogy of the Gospels and Christianity is flawed because Christianity existed prior to the writing of the Gospels. This is quite a compelling persuasion to begin yoga as a regular practice in your day to day routine. There are Yoga centre all around the country, there is bound to be one near you. Browse, search or sort to quickly find a pose, then learn all about its yoga goodness.
Problem is that there are so many fake yogis who do not care about yoga but want to sell it to want to earn name and fame from yoga,earn money from yoga,create a cult around them or they have negative prejudice against hindu religion so they are trying to distort the history of yoga.
What you failed to mention completely, is the heavy influence of Western gymnastics and proto-aerobics on Yoga in the 19th century. That is why various and numerous health clubs and fitness membership organizations across all parts of the world are now offering yoga tutorials, sessions and exercises. However, yoga can be practiced by anyone as an occasional simple exercise routine or on a regular basis as a total way of life. This exploration of these physical-spiritual connections and body centered practices led to the creation of what we primarily think of yoga in the West: Hatha Yoga. Amazing, honestly one of the best yoga classes I’ve ever had, everything from the audiovisuals, the studio itself, to the head massage at the end made for an incredible yoga experience. The exact history and origins of yoga is uncertain; however, there are pieces that have been connected and allow us to make some conclusions.
Most of my responses here have been towards Indians who take a very dogmatic approach to Hinduism and believe that Westerners are being disrespectful of their religion or culture if they practice yoga without being a Hindu, or specifically, they seem very upset if someone writes a history on yoga without mentioning their religion.
