Yoga, derived from the Sanskrit word “yoke” or “union,” encompasses a range of physical, mental, and spiritual practices originating in ancient India. Its primary aim is to regulate the mind, recognizing a state of detached witness-consciousness beyond mundane suffering. With roots in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, yoga encompasses diverse schools, practices, and objectives, and its influence extends globally.

References to yoga-like practices can be found in ancient Hindu scriptures such as the Rigveda and several Upanishads. The earliest documented usage of the term “yoga” in its modern sense appears in the Katha Upanishad, likely composed between the fifth and third centuries BCE. Over centuries, yoga evolved as a structured discipline, particularly during India’s ascetic and Śramaṇa movements in the fifth and sixth centuries BCE.

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, dating back to the early Common Era, represent a seminal text on yoga philosophy. By the second half of the first millennium CE, yoga philosophy emerged as one of the six orthodox schools of Hinduism. Concurrently, Hatha yoga texts began to surface between the ninth and 11th centuries, originating within tantra traditions.
