Happy International Yoga Day!
The word ‘yoga’ comes from Sanskrit meaning to ‘join' or ‘unite’ - symbolising the union of body, mind and consciousness that comes through its practice. Yoga, in the deeper sense of the word, means union. Through yoga and meditation there is a wonderful possibility to discover the best we have within ourselves and, in turn, recognise the best in everyone we meet in our daily lives. Yoga can contribute, in a holistic way, to achieving balance between mind and body and can make a direct contribution to humanity's quest to realise sustainable development and move towards lifestyles that are more in harmony with nature.
On 11 December 2014, the United Nations announced 21 June as the International Day of Yoga to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing the many forms of yoga. This year we invite you to explore all the inner potential and resources within your own heart.
