Tracing the History of Yoga
The History of Yoga has a lot to do with the present times. The earliest Yoga started some 5000 years ago since human civilization has begun.
The scholars have believed that Yoga was originated out of Stone Age Shamanism.
This is because there were some cultural similarities between Mehrgarh which was a Neolithic settlement and the Modern Hinduism.
The shamanistic culture of Mergarh was in fact influenced by Hindu ideals, symbols and rituals of the present.
The ancient shamanism and early Yoga had so much similarity for the reason both wanted to go beyond the human condition.
Shamanism’s primary goal was to heal the members who were in their community and at the same time act as the religious mediators.
Archaic Yoga also had the same objectives as they were community oriented and they aimed to determine the enormous order through senses and inner vision which then can be applied to our daily lives.
As time went on, Yoga has progressed and has regarded the inmost experience. Yogis then have focused on how to improve the individual enlightenment, recovery and salvation.
Yoga’s evidences were first tracked in the archeological evidence which was found in stone seals exhumed from the Indus valley.
