The United Nations notes: “Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness. Today it is practiced in various forms around the world and continues to grow in popularity.”
The first International Yoga Day was celebrated in 2014 on the initiative of the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and to this effect United Nations passed a resolution in order to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga. Yoga for Health is ‘a holistic way to achieving an equilibrium between mind and body’, and one of the ways to promote universal peace and harmony.
