June 21 is the International Day of Yoga. 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. During the global COVID-19 pandemic, the United Nations picked the 2021 Theme: Yoga for well-being.
If you’ve been stressed by disconnecting through social distancing, maybe the integration of body and mind that yoga promotes may be good for you.
