What are you doing to stay physically active and mentally balanced during this global pandemic? For yogis, this coming June 21 is International Yoga Day. The theme of this year’s event is “Yoga for Happiness” and focuses on how the practice of yoga contributes to an individual’s overall health. It is destined to be a very broad topic.
International Yoga Day is a great time to educate others about the benefits of yoga and to maintain a healthy lifestyle at home through exercise and yoga in the midst of a global epidemic. The benefits of practicing yoga are manifold, not just physical, such as improved heart health, improved joint health, increased flexibility, stress relief at work and mental health. The study of yoga is suitable for men and women of all ages. What’s more, all you need is a mat to start learning to use. No more commitment comes from the equipment, we just need time to practice slowly.
We learn this yoga pose from certified yogis without upsetting the balance, as well as the yoga equipment that helps us achieve balance between mind and body. It all starts with simplicity. If you’re new to yoga and don’t know how to start your yoga practice, there are always free YouTube yoga classes online for you to try. Get a solid foundation with Yoga International’s 14-day free trial. Want to take your practice to a whole new level? I’m confident that after a 14-day trial, you may fall in love with practicing yoga as a way to benefit the physical and mental health of us all.
Of course, those who are new to yoga should follow the practice slowly and try to practice without too much autonomy.
