International Yoga Day

International Yoga Day

Today is International Yoga Day. Yoga is a powerful tool to deal with the stress of uncertainty and isolation. It was first proposed by India and endorsed by a record 175 member states. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said “Yoga is an invaluable gift from our ancient tradition. Yoga embodies unity of mind and body, thought and action … a holistic approach [that] is valuable to our health and our well-being. Yoga is not just about exercise; it is a way to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature.”

Spend today trying out yoga in the comfort of your own chair, as well as other relaxation techniques.
