In late medieval Hinduism, Raja Yoga, based on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, was contrasted with the more recent Hatha Yoga. Since the late 19th century, a great number of distinct new styles of "Yoga" have been introduced by individual teachers.

Modern Hinduism and Neo-Hindu revival[edit]

The term "Yoga" has been used for various philosophies and concepts in the context of Hindu revivalism and Neo-Hindu religious and philosophical movements.

Styles of Hatha Yoga[edit]

Eclectic styles[edit]

These are partially derived from concepts of Hatha yoga.

Yoga in other religious traditions[edit]

With the widespread reception of the concept of "Yoga" in the west, the term has also been transferred to similar systems of medition which are not of Indian origin.
