Yoga Today


Nowadays in the western countries yoga is now mostly associated with Hatha yoga and its multiple postures as a form of exercise. It was in the free spirited 1960’s when there was a great interest in Hinduism and spirituality in general was at its most, this then  gave way to a large number of new age Hindu schools being opened to cater specifically for the western customers. It was during this period that a number of influential yoga teachers came over from India. Yogi Bhajan brought over many active Hatha yoga teachers at this time to the USA to promote the discipline including B.K.S Iyengar, K. Pattabhi Jois and Swami Satchidananda.

There was another large boom in people undertaking yoga in the 1980s as one of the followers of Satchidananda connected taking part in yoga exercises to having a healthy heart, this then gave yoga the much needed legitimisation that it had been crying out for away from religion and spiritualism.

Since 2001 yoga has once again become popular in the United States and has been on the rise ever since, the number of people who now take part in yoga has grown rapidly from 4 million persons in 2001 to 20 million people now in 2011.

Yoga Introduction


Yoga is the common name for the practise1 of finding permanent peace via physical, mental and spiritual obedience which was birthed from ancient India. Yoga is defined a union of the divine and “the stilling of the changing states of the mind”. There is many different types of yoga that are found in diverse religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and also Sikhism.

Many people consider Hiranyagarbha as the originator of modern yoga however there is many who believe it came from pre-philosophical days in the first millennium. Hatha yoga being one of the now most widely practised areas deriving from this early method of yoga. The posture exercises are now very popular in western culture and even though there is now many different variations they still all have some aspect of Hatha yoga intertwined.

It is believed that Hindu monks brought the different disciplines of yoga in the late 19th century to the western countries. It was not until the 1980’s that yoga became overly popular as an exercise even though it was around in these areas for much longer.

Many people have tried to make connections between the effectiveness of yoga as a way of treating cancer, schizophrenia, asthma and also heart problems. Certain people have also linked yoga at improving muscle and mental health problems also.
