Yoga is a sport whose goal is to merge the mind and body into one homogeneous unit, and the word yoga means unity of thought, and it is a sport suitable for all ages, especially because it takes place without the use of any sports equipment, and the practice of this sport continuously brings many benefits to the body. The original origin of this sport goes back to India, as Indians knew it about 5,000 years ago, but it was known to the West in the nineteenth century.

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, yoga teachers moved to the west, attracting a number of followers. In 1947, a yoga studio was opened in Hollywood by Indra Devi, which greatly increased the number of Western pioneers and Indian teachers, and increased the popularity of yoga to millions of followers. Yoga has many schools and styles that differ from one to the other.

  • Here: This name is called any type of yoga that teaches physical positions and practices, since most of the types of yoga in the West are of this type, and they are simple in nature, the person practicing them will not sweat, and they usually teach basic and simple positions in yoga.
  • Hot Yoga: This yoga is very similar to Bikram yoga except for the slight differences, but both types depend on the hot rooms in practice.
  • Ayingar: Ayingar yoga is a very subtle yoga that requires a high concentration in order to reach the required position. In order to help practitioners make appropriate positions, several types of supports are used (cushions, chairs, tapes, etc.). This type of yoga requires a comprehensive exercise to properly apply it.
