In Honor of International Yoga Day 2018


| 6/22/2018 2:43:00 PM


Yoga is one of the most popular workout regime in recent times. With its origin in India, the word yoga is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘To unite’. In simple words, I would say yoga is the union of the self and the spirit.

Due to an increase in popularity worldwide, June 21st is celebrated as International Yoga day.

The idea of International Day of Yoga was first proposed by the current Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi, during his speech at the UNGA, on 27 September 2014.

During the month of June and  as we celebrate the International Day of Yoga, I would like to share a few facts on yoga, its relationship with Ayurveda, and my journey with these two sciences.
