The History of Yoga I - A talk by Eva Burns

  • Words Bookstore Cafe (map)

History of Yoga I

Curious about where Yoga began? This talk will investigate Yoga’s roots within India’s early spiritual and philosophical history. Starting in the Indus Valley before 2000 BCE, we will discover archaeological evidence of a proto-yoga. From there, Yoga’s origins within the rishis’ Vedic texts, the Buddha’s teachings and the Jain traditions will be traced up through the Classical period when the polymath, Patañjali, composed The Yoga Sūtras.
