Yoga is a practice of body and mind that began about 5,000 years ago and does not require you to be religious to participate. In the West, yoga began to gain popularity in the late 19th century. Yoga is now widely known for its postures called asanas, but they were not at all a part of India's original yoga traditions. Physical training was not the goal there, instead the focus was on developing spirituality through breathing and mind exercises.
The father of classical yoga is Patanjali, who wrote the famous Yoga Sutras. These are the scriptures that provide a framework for developing a human mastery and give sense to how to possess the mind, control emotions, and develop spiritually. This is one of the most practical yoga texts that anyone can use in their daily lives.
Some people mistakenly think that they need to be young and flexible to start yoga, but it's like thinking that we should know how to dance before we attend a dance class. Feel free to get started and try, and you'll soon notice how yoga practice can help you become softer, more flexible, and open your mind.
