Yoga & Health

Yoga is an ancient art, science and philosophy. Lord Shiva is considered to have originated Yoga. Yoga is considered to be the precursor to many other forms of physical sport and games, gymnastics, martial arts, etc. It is said that Lord Shiva passed his knowledge of Yoga to his consort, Goddess Parvati who then passed on this knowledge to the great sages. Sage Patanjali is considered to be one of the first great yogis. His work on yoga called ‘Yoga Sutras of Patanjali’ is very well-known and a treatise on the subject.
