Yoga is a group of physical, mental and spiritual practices that originated in ancient India. In fact, Yoga is one of the six orthodox philosophical schools of Hinduism. Equally popular in the West, Yoga is also seen as an exercise that consists mostly of postures or asanas.
Following the success of Swami Vivekananda in the late 19th and Early 20th centuries, outside India, it has been developed as a posture-based physical fitness and stress-relieving relaxation technique. Yoga has been so wildly popular that now the Government of India has launched a post for a Yoga and Naturopathy Officer.
