      Very few of you know that Yoga was first described in Katha Upanishad (Hindu Scripture 400 BCE) as a “steady control on senses.” In ancient India, it was considered a means to attain everlasting peace of mind. It is believed that Yoga postures were used even during the Indus Valley Civilization and the same is also mentioned in the Indian text like Upanishads, Bhagvad Gita, and Mokshdharma around 500-200 BCE. Mentions about yoga can also be found in the Mahabharata in the form of words like “Bhakti Yoga,” “Karma Yoga,” and “Gyan Yoga.”
