Origin of yoga

Yoga, being widely considered as “ immortal culture outcome” of “Indus saraswati valley civilisation” – dating back to 2700 B.C. , has proved itself catering to both material & spiritual upliftment of humanity. Basic human value are the very identity of yoga sadhana.

The science of yoga has its origin thousands of year ago, long before the 1st religions or belief systems were born. Shiva is seen as the first yogi & first guru called as “Adi yogi” or “Adi guru”. Several thousand year ago , on the banks of the lake “kantisarovar” in the Himalayas, Adi yogi poured his profound knowledge into the legendary “saptarishis or Seven Sages”. The sage carried this powerful yogic science to different parts of the world, including Asia, the middle east, Northern Africa & South Africa. However, it was in India that the yogic system found its fullest expression. Agastya and saptrishi who travelled across the Indian subcontinent, crafted this culture around a core yogic way of life.
