The origins of Yoga date back to pre-Vedic times, thousands of years ago. Yoga is a discipline that goes beyond asanas (or exercises) and is a lifestyle that helps one live in harmony with oneself and the world. With heightened material prosperity, many people have realized the limitations of pure material gratification. To them Yoga comes across as an ideal venue that helps them not just live healthy but with a sense of satisfaction. Visvamitra aims to identify all those Yoga teachers and practitioners who propagate Yoga for the benefit and welfare of humanity.
