“Yoga is not a religion. It is a science, science of well-being, science of youthfulness, science of integrating body, mind and soul.” - Amit Ray (Indian Author and Yoga Master)
Namaste! International Day of Yoga was first proclaimed by the United Nations in 2014 and is celebrated every June 21 — typically the longest day of the year. A relatively new holiday, Yoga Day aims to raise awareness worldwide of the spiritual, mental and physical benefits yoga provides. Uniting the body and consciousness, yoga is simultaneously a healthy exercise and an excellent form of meditation unlike any other — a practice dating back more than 5000 years in ancient India. Bust out your yoga mat today and celebrate this important international holiday.
