What is so special about International yoga day?
In Mr. Narendra Modi’s (Indian prime minister who proposed Yoga day)words, “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. “
