Several seals discovered at Indus Valley Civilization (c. 3300-1700 BC) sites depict figures in a yoga- or meditation-like posture, "a form of ritual discipline, suggesting a precursor of yoga." Archaeologist Gregory Possehl points to 16 specific "yogi glyptics" in the corpus of Mature Harappan artifacts as pointing to Harappan devotion to "ritual discipline and concentration." These images show that the yoga pose "may have been used by deities and humans alike."

Yoga is a discipline with many meanings.The American/ Western form of yoga is called Hatha Yoga - Pertaining to the various 'Forms' of yoga the physical postures are essential for gaining progress in meditation and other forms of yoga e.g jnana yoga/ raja yoga.Most Western yoga is a rip off/ scam used by untrained unacknowledged idiots to make money.The western form of yoga can help condition the body to a certain extent but as the form is not authentic. Yoga is a path to help man reach a higher level of understanding and is inexorably linked to the religion of hinduism.Hinduism wasnt created it was developed by ancient rishi's (sages who through meditation heard cosmic knowledge and tried to record/ translate this into a form humans can use.It was developed for Man Be that MEN or woMEN.If you want more information on the subject read Books around the subject.
