Yoga

hellobali Guide to Bali - - A-Z OF BALINESE TRADITIONAL CULTURE -

SOME CLAIM that the his­tory of yoga in Bali dates back cen­turies, even thou­sands of years. This seems highly un­likely. Hindu-Bud­dhist teach­ings re­lated to yoga and med­i­ta­tion may have ar­rived from around the 8th cen­tury but there is no com­pelling ac­count. It has nev­er­the­less be­come for some vis­i­tors a sig­nif­i­cant fea­ture of their Ba­li­nese ex­pe­ri­ence and is also be­com­ing in­creas­ingly im­por­tant for many Ba­li­nese peo­ple who have be­gun to in­cor­po­rate it into their wor­ship, prayer and health regimes.
