Today marks the first International Yoga Day, as declared by the United Nations this year.
More than 170 countries will celebrate today as Yoga Day. Although Yoga has it's roots in Hinduism and India, it does NOT belong to any particular religion and it's benefits can be reaped by the entire world.

is all we need!
