    Where does Yoga come from

    Where did Yoga originate? How long as it existed? What was it's original purpose and how many forms of it are there? Sorry for all the questions, I've just gotten really curious about it lately.

    Wow, yeah! I've heard people throw the word "Namaste" around a lot in classes that have nothing to do with Yoga. Just because an exercise is slow moving and improves flexibility and focuses on meditation does not qualify it for Yoga.

    Haha took your advice and yeah, it's India! I had not idea it's been practiced for 5,000 years! Yoga is definitely not a fad LOL

    Um...I'm gonna guess India? Correct me if I'm wrong but I think it has Hindu roots. Either way, I'm pretty sure it originated in Asia and I think it's really old.
