Yoga, with its poses, meditation and breathing exercises, has been practiced in Eastern cultures for thousands of years, but it wasn't until the 20th century that yoga became so popular in the West. In the 1930s, many Westerners began to study yoga as part of an increasing public interest in health and vegetarianism. In the 1960s, several important Indian yogis immigrated to Western countries and began sharing their knowledge. When Western pop culture icons, such as Mia Farrow and the members of the Beatles, displayed an interest in the practice, its popularity among the general public took an upward turn.
