Yoga is not just a form of exercise, it is a means of  meditation and centering oneself. Yoga was founded in ancient India, in south Asia. Back then, yoga was almost always accompanied by local religions. As a result, people who practiced yoga extensively were usually devout Hindus or Buddhists. However, over time the benefits of yoga began to spread through word of mouth and it was adopted by large portions of the Indian population. From there, it expanded across the globe, to be adopted by secular fans.

While yoga has existed in Asia for centuries, it only really gained traction in the western world in the 1900s. It is popular because it is an easily adoptable form of low impact exercise that can benefit everyone, from the novice to the yoga master. Yoga has been proven  to alleviate physical health issues like back pain, and also helps with several mental health conditions. Perhaps it is best known for poses that seem simple at times, but are actually complex and challenging.
