Over the past many years, Yoga has become a popular form of exercise around the world especially since it not only exercises the body, but also the mind. Yoga is extremely beneficial, it improves blood flow, agility and allows one to achieve a few moments of mental clarity before we get back to the grind. International Day of Yoga is celebrated every day on 21 June, since 2015, and is a recognised event all around the world. It is a widely known fact that the physical, mental and spiritual practice of yoga originated in India. The International Day of Yoga was proposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi In his 2014 address at the United Nations General Assembly, where he suggested that a day celebrating and practicing yoga must be globally recognised.

This June 21 will mark the sixth edition of International Day of Yoga Day, and given how the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in global lockdowns, the theme this year is, ‘Yoga at Home and Yoga with Family’. So while you practice asanas at home, make sure you send some Yoga inspiration to your near and dear ones.

Here are some of the best quotes, images to share on WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, this International Day of Yoga:

It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well being. - Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India
