The term ‘YOGA’ is derived from the  literal meaning of “yoking together” a span of horses or oxes, but came to be applied to the “yoking” of  mind and body. Originated around 3000 BC or more than that and is developed as a part of the TANTRIC civilization which existed in India. The first book to refer yoga were ancient TANTRAS and later the Sacred VEDAS.  SAGE PATANJALI – Father of modern yoga lived around  400 BC – 200 AD codified the first definitive, unified and comprehensive system of yoga. Ancient time yoga techniques were kept as a secret and were passed on from teacher to disciple by word of mouth. In this way there was a clear understanding of their meaning and aim removing any misunderstanding. Baba Ramdev – Founder of Patanjali Yogpeeth – is the now popular Yogi in India as well as  abroad. Patanjali Institutions under  University of Patanjali  are the world renowned institutions for Medical Science and Research in yoga and Ayurveda.
