Ever wondered when yoga was first discovered? Or who was the first yoga teacher and when was the first yoga class?
Over 15,000 years ago at a time predating all religion, Adiyogi, the first yogi, transmitted the science of yoga to his seven disciples, the Saptarishis.
Today, millions of people on the planet are practicing some form of yoga. This has not happened because of force or conversion, but out of yoga’s sheer efficacy.
Yoga is widely practiced today purely as a form of physical exercise, however yoga is much more than that. It is the technology of taking one’s life energies to the very peak and making the human system a ladder to the divine.
To achieve this, Adiyogi expounded 112 ways through which a person can transcend their limitations and reach their ultimate potential.
Today, we refer to this being as Shiva. But in yoga, Shiva is not seen as a God, but as the Adiyogi or the First Yogi.
Mahashivratri 2017, the Night of Shiva, is one of the biggest and most significant among the festivals of India. The occurrence of a unique planetary alignment on this night causes a natural upsurge of energy in the human system, allowing one to undergo an intense and powerful inner transformation.
