Yoga refers to traditional physical and mental disciplines originating in India. The word is associated with meditative practices in the east. The Sanskrit word yoga has many meanings, and is derived from the Sanskrit root "yuj", meaning union or to unite. Yoga is thought to have originated in 3300BC in the Indus Valley. Ancient Vedic texts have been found in the region from this date, depicting figures in positions resembling a common yoga or meditation pose, showing "a form of ritual discipline", suggesting a precursor of yoga.
