The UN has declared 21st June as International Yoga Day. Woohoo!! And here's our chance to be a part of history and the first ever one!
The date 21st June which is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere has special significance. From the perspective of Yoga it is considered a time when there is natural support for those pursuing spiritual practices.
I urge everyone to join in and inspire others to join as well!
As a part of the celebration I think everyone should do at least one of Skimble Yoga Workouts today. I know I'm going to!
This is a great idea, dear pinky. (: of course i'm in, too. ((:
Happy International Yoga Day, everyone!!
The word "yoga" means "union": of the individual consciousness or soul with the Universal Consciousness or Spirit. Yoga is a profound science of unfolding the infinite potentials of the human mind and soul.
What is gaining a lot of popularity nowadays is the practice of asanas or postures which doesn't necessarily have anything to do with spirituality... Just performing those alone, with the proper breathing, can help people relax, improve their posture, flexibility and a lot more.
Also yoga is for everyone: men and women, regardless of their age!
Let's treat ourselves with at least one yoga workout here today!
