This Hindu discipline focuses on training the consciousness for a state of perfect spiritual insight. People interested in learning this gentle form of exercise can take yoga instruction, often offered at fitness centers and independent facilities such as yoga studios. Yoga is made up of varying positions, poses, breathing exercises, meditation, and muscle stretches. The focus is on teaching balance and achieving personal tranquility through a system of poses and postures, such as inversions, core strengthening poses, twists, and standing yoga poses. The origins of pre-classical yoga can be traced back to the Upanishads, which were written between 1000-5000 BC. But exact dates and origins are largely unknown. This spiritual ritual involves a mat, the appropriate clothing, and some intense concentration. Looking for a yoga instruction class near you?
