While all forms of exercise offer physical and mental benefits, yoga stands out for its dual advantages: enhancing physical health and cultivating exceptional mental strength. Yoga provides numerous benefits, with stress management being particularly noteworthy.

In the present day, amidst the fast-paced life where time for health is often scarce and stress levels are high, individuals are susceptible to various illnesses. In this scenario, dedicating just half an hour to 45 minutes to yoga can promote both physical and mental well-being. Recognizing its significance, the global community has embraced yoga as a crucial practice.

International Yoga Day is annually celebrated on June 21st following its recognition by the UN. This year marks the tenth edition of this global event, which aims to promote yoga for health, spiritual growth, and fostering global peace.
