The age of the beginning of yoga is estimated to be around 4,000 years, and during this long period this discipline spread to many systems from spreading from India to the west.
Some of them benefit from meditation, the other breathing, and the third physical exercises. Some of these directions have been written somehow small and secret, and today many books are available to the general public. For practicing yoga, people today are deciding on different motives. Someone wants to achieve greater flexibility and vitality of the body or relieve the pain, someone is trying to relax the mind of everyday worries, while someone is eager to explore the depths of their own consciousness in the silence of meditation.
One of the most popular yoga walks in the West is called Hatha Yoga. She emphasizes exercises that include different specific positions that extend and strengthen the entire body, helping to develop a sense of balance and flexibility as well as body awareness and mind concentration. All types of yoga include breathing exercises that can raise the level of energy, relax the mind and balance many bodily functions.
