Its philosophy is rooted in a physical culture of health and well-being that is still emphasized today at yoga retreats and explains why over 15 million people in the world now practice this ancient tradition. Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India. There is a broad variety of Yoga schools, practices, and Goals in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. Among the most well-known types of yoga are Hatha yoga and Rāja yoga. Every yoga asana (pose) has a different name and includes standing postures, seated twists, backbends, arm balances, inversions and core holds. The downward facing dog for example, is in itself said to calm the brain, energies the body, improve digestion, strengthen arms and legs and be therapeutic for high blood pressure.
