The word ‘yoga’ derives from the Sanskrit word ‘yuj’, meaning union or to unite. While yoga has been practised over thousands of years, we celebrate International Yoga Day each year on the 21st of June to spread more awareness about the benefits of yoga. Yoga offers a wholesome experience and aims to create a union between the body, mind and spirit. To be more specific, it transcends one from the state of self to divine consciousness.
In this fast-paced world, one can slow down with yoga and look inward to create self-awareness. People need something in this age of modernisation and digitalisation to keep themselves physically and mentally stimulated. You can reconnect with yourself through yoga on this International Yoga Day and unite with different aspects of life.
