Yoga is simply part of everyday life in India, the country of its origin where it dates back some 2,600 years. But ever since the beginning of last century when this spiritual and health practice became a cultural trend in the west, it has been growing in popularity and spread now all over the world.
From stress reduction to increasing stamina and as a beneficial complement to many medical therapies, the benefits of the practice are legion.
In 2014 the UN adopted 21 June as International Day of Yoga, and two years later, in 2016, the practice was listed as an intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO.
