How exactly did this day come to be? Well, on 11 December 2014, the United Nations proclaimed 21 June as International Yoga Day by resolution 69/131 for peace and harmony after being raised by the Indian Prime Minister Narender Modi. The date of June 21 was chosen as it is the Summer Solstice, the day where there is the most sun out of every other day of the year.

Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual physical form of practice which originated in Northern India over 5,000 years ago. It continues to grow in popularity with an estimated 300 million practitioners worldwide and counting. Yoga combines physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation to enhance well being.

Multiple studies have confirmed the health benefits of yoga including:

Improved flexibility
Improved cardiovascular health
Improved strength
Improved sleep
Reduces stress and anxiety
Improved concentration and focus
