It is a little-known fact, but according to historians, yoga was first found in Africa before it arrived in what is now known as India.
That is one fact that Krishna Caur, president of the International Association of Black Yoga Teachers, is trying to get out to more African Americans.
“We want to be able to let our people know that historically yoga goes back thousands and thousands of years . . . Egypt is one of the places where there is a lot of evidence in tombs, where you see hieroglyphs of people doing yoga postures,” said Caur.
