It has been known, since the beginning of creation, that spiritual exercise was a form of communication between human and God and human to human.
For each existing civilization, there were laws and rituals whose purpose were to regulate and calm the human body and mind.
This kind of exercise was practiced in a dancing form along with certain rules of movement, confirmed in ancient drawing found by archeologists in Sumerian and Babylon.
Their participation in this exercise was to share and express themselves spiritually With the goddess Ishtar.
For their obedience they would ask to be blessed by her.
The goddess Ishtar was a teacher/master/leader and has the people participating in this form of dance.
This would provide the people of ancient Babylon with a wall of Selfconfidence and powerful mental well being.
She was the spiritual leader of her People.
It was from here that the idea of connecting the history of the exercise and the Babylonians came together.
I started searching for information on three Mysteries the first was the use of the stone (blue/lapis) and turquoise, Which envelope the walls of Ishtar's gate in Babylon.
The second, was the Importation of precious gems using a bartering system to acquire them and the third Being the use of dance and (manufacture) of musical instruments to express both joy And sadness.
The researcher used both the historical and practical methods to verify her three suppositions through an integrated program that included Babylonian yoga and aerobics as well as the use of music and precious stones and crystals.
Having put this program into practice the researcher has come the following conclusions.: 1.
The program of aerobics and yoga Babylonian and the use of music, colors and stones contributed to restore the energy of the participants of all ages and to restore the spiritual calmness, and the psychological and nervous relax to them.
The Babylonian yoga is the infrastructure that has been adopted by all civilizations that have come later and the basis of the idea is to address the continuing spirit of body and soul, which was represented by the love and instincts God, Ishtar, who was the only dominant on its own people.
