The Pasupatas are generally seen as one of the oldest of these groups. They are mentioned from around 200 AD, but archaeological findings (coins, linga symbols of Siva) indicate that early prototypes can be dated back to maybe 200 BC, which, we recall, was a period of emerging monotheism and caste society. The earliest text belonging to these early Saivites – the Pasupata Sutra – dates to 400-600 AD. Here yoga is described as a union between the soul (pasu) and god (pata) (Hara 1999). So it is possible that the meaning of yoga as union comes from these groups. The membership of the Pasupata was restricted to Brahmins. Most of the Pasupata groupings seem to have disappeared around 1400 AD as Turkic Muslims settled in Northern India.
The Saivite ascetic cults often lived an antinomian lifestyle, transgressing Vedic injunctions. So some Saivite groups could be imagined as counter-hegemonic groups rejecting Brahmin rules and regulations – the caste society. From the Saivite groups emerged major factions who totally disregarded all norms of (most) societies: the Kapalikas (the skull bearers, emerged around 5-600 AD, many Tantric rituals), the Kalamukhas (flourishing around 900-1300 AD) and the Lakulas (who totally rejected the Vedic injunctions).
