When was yoga created?
The beginnings of Yoga were developed by the Indus-Sarasvati civilization in Northern India over 5,000 years ago. The word yoga was first mentioned in the oldest sacred texts, the Rig Veda. The Vedas were a collection of texts containing songs, mantras and rituals to be used by Brahmans, the Vedic priests.
What is Yog?

The continued practice of yogawill lead you to a sense of peace and well-being, and also a feeling of being at one with their environment. This is a simple definition.
Is yoga a religion?
Besides yoga, three major religions came from those texts – Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism. Around 200-400AD, a sage called Patanjali composed the Yoga Sutras. His “eight limbs” of yoga still inform practice today and discuss posture, breathing, meditation and correct living.
