The Basics of Yoga & Its Benefits

Yoga is more than just an exercise program. It is an ancient way of life that helps create a healthy mind and body through physical exercise, mental discipline and meditation.


  • Yoga originated in India in 3000 B.C. as a spiritual discipline meant to join the individual self with the divine or cosmic consciousness. Yoga masters, called yogis, originally developed yoga's mental and physical exercise to further this goal. Yoga came to America in the late 19th century but didn't become truly popular until the 1960s.
