Celebrated worldwide, 21 June marks the International Day of Yoga in which yogis from all around the world gather to celebrate the universal appeal of yoga. Recognised by the United Nations as one of the best alternatives for individuals to seek an inner balance of their mind, body, and soul, this year’s theme “Yoga for Humanity” echoes strongly with how values of mindfulness, moderation and discipline, when embraced by communities and societies, would offer a path for sustainable living and world harmony.
