The original yoga was not a physical yoga, but a purely spiritual yoga. If you want to really read about the original yoga read the Bhagavad Gita and read the dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna. Us Hindus laugh every time you talk about physical yoga. Most of us practice the spiritual yoga and bhakti yoga, which is devotional yoga, true communion with God. Bhakti is chanting and singing the name of God. It's called Kirtan music. Krishna was very practical and talked real life and how to change your life for the better. The physical yoga came way later. The original yoga is rarely spoken about by our society. I am an American Hindu who converted to Hinduism because of its practical application in every day life and having a real experience with Krishna. This the yoga we need to hear more about.
