Yoga is the spiritual path of discipline aimed at integrating the mind, body and spirit, and achieving a state of enlightenment, edification and unification in the universe. The art of Yoga developed, was perfected and practiced in India 5,000 years ago. The early writing of Yoga were transcribed on delicate palm leaves that were easily damaged or destroyed. Later the references of Yoga can be found in the sacred texts composed by Indian Aryans in the Vedic and post Vedic period. All the philosophies of Yoga are universal and can be incorporated within any belief system.

In the early 1880's and 1990's, many of the renowned Yog gurus began to travel to the west, attracting attention and gaining million of followers.
