The idea of International Day of Yoga was first proposed by the current Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi in 2014.  He stated that: 

“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. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well being. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.”

— Narendra Modi, UN General Assembly

In today’s world, many people feel that yoga is not for them – we often hear people say “it’s not for me, I am not flexible enough”.  But the truth is that yoga can be accessible to everyone, and there is form of yoga out there to suit all people regardless of flexibility, limitations, body shape, age or ability.  There are many forms of yoga – all of which have amazing benefits for your health and wellbeing.  Yoga can improve your ability to function as a human being more efficiently and effectively.

You don’t need to be able to turn yourself inside out to benefit from a regular yoga practice. Yoga builds strong immune systems, build good overall health and helps you to learn to live with purpose and grace.
