religion by several centuries. Ancient seals have been found that depict
the gods doing the poses from yoga. These were found in the Indus Valley
which is one of the first known civilizations here on Earth. The area is
located where Pakistan and India are now. The seals suggest that yoga
was around before 3000 BC.
