What is it?


The United Nations General Assembly declared June 21st the International Day of Yoga on December 11, 2014.  The Honourable Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi says this about yoga:

“Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition . It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature.”  Source:
