Yoga dates back to 5000 years ago where it originates in India. In the past, yoga is practiced for good health and fitness. Today, on top of the objectives of the past, yoga is used to train body and mind control. Yoga literally means to unite; to unite the mind, spirit and body to achieve health, fitness and balance.

There are six branches of yoga.

1.Hatha Yoga or Yoga of Postures
Hatha yoga is the more popular form of yoga among people today. The word "hatha" comes from the Sanskrit terms "ha" meaning "sun" and "tha" meaning "moon". Opposites referring to the positive (sun) and the negative (moon) unites in this system of yoga.
2.Bhakti Yoga or Yoga of Devotion
In Bhakti yoga, we try to alter the condition of the mind. It is a process of mental transformation and purification. This causes us to change our character, mode of thinking, way of life, feelings, emotions and methods of communication. Only then have we perfected this form of yoga. Bhakti yoga enables us to move to another level of purity.
3.Raja Yoga or Yoga of Self-Control
Raja yoga means royal and sometimes known as the crown of Hatha yoga. This form of yoga trains our humans to become more focused after it has undergone cleansing. This trains us to remain calm and attentive.
4.Jnana Yoga or Yoga of the Mind
This form of yoga is for the purpose of self-discovery. It questions the nature of the self: Who am I? It continuously probes and fixes on being to allow us to realize or true self. This inquiry process leads us towards clear awareness and removes our attention from which we are not.
5.Karma Yoga or Yoga of Service
It is believed that your current situation is the result of your past actions. So by doing selfless service now, we are choosing a future that is devoid of negativity and selfishness. This form of yoga alters one’s attitude towards the good.
6.Tantra Yoga or Yoga of Rituals
Tantra Yogis must possess certain qualities like purity, humility, devotion, dedication to his Guru, cosmic love, and truthfulness among other things. Tantra which means "woven together" signifies the worship of the sexual union of the opposite sex. It has also come to be applied to sex-based religious practices developed in other religions, including Bon, Tibetan Buddhism, Taoism, Christianty, Judaism, and Transcendentalism.

People may think that yoga is for exercising purposes. This may be true in some sense but yoga also trains the mental and spiritual aspect of a person.
