Since ancient times, Yoga has been practiced for its many physical and mental benefits. The advantages of using Yoga in your life have been studied and perfected for many years.
And it can work for you, whether young or old, ill or in good health.
If you’re thinking of practicing Yoga, it might help to understand its roots…
The practice is said to be as old as civilizations itself. But written history classifies it into four periods of time: the Vedic, Pre-Classical, Classical and Post Classical.
Yoga’s rich tradition of healing can be traced back to stone seals dated around 3000 B.C. But scholars believe that Yoga was around even during the Stone Age period when Shamanism was practiced.
Shamans were medical healers and tried to improve the health of their fellowman during a time when there were no educated doctors and when the community’s survival depended upon a disease-free existence.
Our Western doctors are constantly revealing other health benefits of Yoga…
They now recommend yoga practice as a way to relieve symptoms of many illnesses like heart disease, arthritis, AIDS and obesity.
And, today, many senior citizens are turning to Hatha Yoga as a way to prevent damage that aging can cause.
We’re just now learning the scope of the benefits practicing Yoga can bring to a society plagued by diseases and ill health.
