 It is not really known exactly where or when Yoga originated. There have been many suggestions. 

However, there are artifacts, dug from the ground at Mahenjo Daro (Indus Valley 2500 and 3000 BC) in the form of terracotta pots depicting young girls in different postures (asanas) and old men in meditative poses.

 

 

 Although there is no record from this time, these artifacts serve to attest that Yoga has been around for more than five thousand years. Within the most ancient texts of India, the Vedas (religious texts) Yoga has been mentioned.
