Around 400 BC, a text called the “Yoga Sutra” was compiled, which gave yoga a specific form with a system of exercises. Since then, yoga has continued to grow and expand, but it was only in recent times that it was introduced to the Western world. Today, more people than ever practice yoga to find inner peace. Here are ten facts you should know about this incredibly harmonious form of exercise.

The swastika originates from yoga…

The swastika (the well-known symbol used by Germany during World War II) was originally a yoga symbol and means “that which is associated with well-being”.

Hatha yoga is mostly practiced in the Western part…

Hatha yoga” is a type of yoga that is mostly practiced in Western culture. “Ha” means “sun” and “Tha” means “moon“, and practicing hatha yoga is a way to combine these two complementary forces.

And yes, there is yoga for dogs too…

Doga” is a type of physical technique where people use yoga to achieve harmony with their pets. Originally from New York in 2002, when Suzi Teitelman started a yoga class for dogs. Could you imagine doing this with your dog?

Naked yoga for men…

Aaron Starr teaches “Hot Nude Yoga“, which is naked yoga, in a studio in Chelsea. The classes are exclusively for men, and there are only two rules: “no kissing and no touching of p*nises”.

Can improve your s*x life…

Numerous studies have shown that yoga can improve s*x life and can also prevent and treat s*x-related problems by enhancing the overall health of the cardiovascular system.

Can enhance your org*sms…

Yoga can enhance your org*sms. Yes, you read that correctly. When a person has an org*sm, the pelvic floor muscles, which are located between the legs, contract. In yoga terms, the pelvic floor muscles are called “moola bandha“. Yoga practice strengthens the pelvic floor muscles, providing benefits similar to “Kegel exercises“. Additionally, an Indian study has shown that it can also help you last longer during intercourse. Yoga sounds like a winning concept, doesn’t it?

But many people also get injured…

In the United States alone, there were reported 4,450 yoga-related injuries in 2006. Between 2001 and 2014, there were over 30,000 reported cases of yoga-related injuries in the United States alone.

Cheers to globalization…!

Yoga has been called one of the first and most successful products of globalization.

We owe a lot to Swami Vivekananda…

The Hindu leader Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) is considered a key figure in bringing yoga to Western culture, and his appearance at the “Parliament of the World’s Religions” in Chicago in 1893 is said to have initiated the yoga revolution in the Western worldThe Beatles, especially George Harrison, also played a significant role in introducing yoga to the Western world.

Has no religious significance…

We can all agree that yoga and Hinduism are closely related, and while yoga can be associated with religion, it is not a religion itself. Yoga is generally seen as a form of spirituality.
