Where did Yoga Originate?

Many people ask me “Where did Yoga originate?” Before giving them any direct answer, I like to explain what the word yoga means to give them a better understanding.  

Yoga stems from peace and tranquility. The very word Yoga was born from the Sanskrit word which is Yuj. What is the meaning of Yuj?

 

It simply means to unite. This union is between the Consciousness or the Universal Spirit. 

Yoga was born 26,000 years ago in India. There is speculation that yoga may even be older than we think. During the Golden Age is when Yoga first came about. People saw this as a time of blessing and peace.
