Yoga heals our mind, body and soul and hence, it won’t be wrong to say that this healthy practice helps to maintain sanity in our day to day life. Yoga is believed to be practiced for over 5000 years now and people from all walks of life, caste, creed and age have adopted it to lead a happy lifestyle. To mark its importance, International Day of Yoga is celebrated every year on 21 st June. All credit goes to Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who proposed International Day of Yoga. On December 11 th, 2014, the United Nations declared June 21 st June as the International Day of Yoga, which is now celebrated by different nations.
