Practice of yoga originated from ancient Vedic Sanskrit traditions. The word yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root YUJ meaning of YUJ is to bind, join, attach and YOKE meaning of YOKE is to direct and concentrate one’s attention on to use and apply.(union or communion) it is the true union of our will with the will of GOD.

When man first discovered that he is much more than what he sees and feels in the physical dimension, he designed specific methods through continuous research on observation of nature over the generations. Yoga traditions and practices were handed down by word of mouth form masters to disciple.

 Old Vedic masters (at present Himalayan yoga masters) they inspired from observation of animals and nature in the forests. They surprised because animals in the forests do not fall sick, get degenerative diseases and not  feel miserable (hear they know nature has given all living things (human and animal) quick survival and rejuvenate on system well beyond the terrestrial.

They think why animals are not fall into ill or sickness. Thoroughly thinking they knew God give mind only to human and strength to animals. They wanted how to gain strength to a human.

Then they started followed animal positions after that they knew their body become strength then they drew some structures for postures on how animal’s moving, stretch, and sleeping were able to create sets of postures and position for man to heal and rejuvenate. 

In the yoga posture we find that some postures resemble the positions of animals for example snake pose, cat pose, monkey pose peacock pose, frog pose etc…and so many other animals poses.

  They observed very clearly and began to imitate animal’s position after practiced they know body realization from some un-conditions then they create postures and exercises that is called yoga.
