Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness.
Recognizing its universal appeal, on 11 December 2014, the United Nations proclaimed 21 June as the International Day of Yoga.
The International Day of Yoga aims to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga.
The fifth annual International Day of Yoga will be celebrated at the United Nations on Thursday, 20 June 2019, with “Yoga with Gurus,” followed by a panel discussion on 21 June.
A commitment and a sense of respect for mother nature overcomes regular yoga practitioners, and this will help individuals act a certain way at home and work building towards a better future.
Cooperative individuals on the other hand have a big role in garnering support of people on larger scales and work with them to build a sustainable means of revival for the environment and survival for the human race.
Additionally, surviving on little, helping out locally while thinking globally etc. will only help reduce each individuals carbon footprint, leading to numerous benefits to the world around us. Its a long road ahead, and the world needs all the help it can get.
