Doing yoga has become increasingly popular in the United States as well as throughout the world due to its physical and mental health benefits. In fact it is the second most popular exercise in America, especially among women. The ancient method of yoga exercise began in India in the 5th century BC and since then it has spread throughout the world. It was first imported to Europe and America in the late nineteenth century, when it was brought by Indian doctors migrating to several countries. The special thing is that you can do yoga anywhere. It’s not like running where you have to take time to build up the stamina to run a mile. Yoga is relatively easy to learn, you can practice with a group or just on your own. Yoga is the second most popular fitness exercise in the world today.
