One of the oldest sciences in the world says that the Yoga originated in India. 500 BC to 800 AD is considered the classical period and also the richest period in the growth of Yoga. Later, in the mid-nineteenth century, saints made a vital contribution to the field of yoga by simplifying it and making it available to the householder; this way yoga became accessible to millions were highlighted to the audience during addressing of the dignitaries.
