The Beauty of Yoga in Life delves into the origins of yoga and how it has developed over the centuries, as well as spurring mental faculties through the mind body benefits. Since 2,000 years before Christ, yoga has been used in India and perfected by others to strengthen and bring health to both mind and body. The word yoga means yoke, a yoking together and a bringing of harmony to oneself, especially useful in today's stressed populations. The spiritual understanding of yoga is explained and how all paths of yoga lead not only to self-improvement but to spirituality.

Yoga refers to traditional physical and mental disciplines originating in India. The word is associated with meditative practices in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. In Hinduism, it also refers to one of the six orthodox'(astika) schools of Hindu philosophy, and to the goal towards which that school directs its practices. In Jainism it refers to the sum total of all activities-mental, verbal and physical.

Major branches of yoga in Hindu philosophy include Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, and Hatha Yoga. Raja Yoga, compiled in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and known simply as yoga in the context of Hindu philosophy, is part of the Samkhya tradition. Many other Hindu texts discuss aspects of yoga, including Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the Shiva Samhita and various Tantras.

The Sanskrit word yoga has many meanings, and is derived from the Sanskrit root ''yuga,'' meaning "to control," ''to yoke" or "to unite." Translations include "joining," "uniting," "union," "conjunction," and "means." Outside India, the term yoga is typically associated with Hatha Yoga and its asana (postures) or as a form of exercise. Someone who practices yoga or follows the yoga philosophy is called a yogi or yogini. The Vedic Samhitas contain references to ascetics, while ascetic practices (tapas) are referenced in the Brahma Gas (900 to 500 BCE), early commentaries on the Vedas. Several seals discovered at Indus Valley Civilization (c. 330~1700 B.C.E.) sites in Pakistan depict figures in positions resembling a common yoga or meditation pose, showing "a form of ritual discipline, suggesting a precursor of yoga", according to archaeologist Gregory Passel. Some type of connection between the Indus Valley seals and later yoga and meditation practices is speculated upon by many scholars, though there is no conclusive evidence.

Techniques for experiencing higher states of consciousness in meditation were developed by the shamanic traditions and in the Upanishad tradition.

While there is no clear evidence for meditation in pre-Buddhist early Brahmin texts, Wynne argues that formless meditation originated in the Brahmin tradition, based on strong parallels between Upanishad cosmological statements and the meditative goals of the two teachers of the Buddha as recorded in the early Buddhist texts.

He mentions less likely possibilities as well. Having argued that the cosmological statements in the Upanishads also reflect a contemplative tradition, he argues that the Nasadiya Sukta contains evidence for a contemplative tradition, even as early as the late Rg Vedic period. The Buddhist texts are probably the earliest texts describing meditation techniques. They describe meditative practices and states which had existed before the Buddha as well as those which were first developed within Buddhism. In Hindu literature, the term "yoga" first occurs in the Katha Upanishad, where it refers to control of the senses and the cessation of mental activity leading to a supreme state.

Important textual sources for the evolving concept of Yoga are the middle Upanishads, (ca. 400 BCE), the Mahabharata including the Bhagavad Gita (ca. 200 BCE), and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (150 BCE).
