International Yoga Day: Downward dog this June 21 at Manchester’s Great Northern

Log out, shut down and find your inner Zen this Friday to celebrate International Yoga Day.

Yoga is a mind, body and spiritual practice that originated in India over 5,000 years ago. Various styles of yoga combine physical postures, breathing techniques and relaxation.

Multiple studies have confirmed the many mental and physical benefits of yoga. Incorporating it into your routine can help enhance your health, increase strength and flexibility and reduce symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety.

Due to the fabulous benefits, it’s no surprise an approximate 460,000 Brits are currently practicing yoga in the UK.

International day of yoga is around the corner (Friday ,21 st) and if I could pick one wish, to wish for all those that surround me, I would wish for every single one of them to find the type of yoga that makes him feel good! So that a persistent devotion will be formed, a regular training schedule will be set and they will embark on a journey in which they will strengthen and achieve balance both fiscally and mentally. Some peace and quiet may be achieved, more control over tour body, emotions and the countless thoughts that run around in the mind. Improvement of range reach, inducing old pain and most importantly – learning how to listen to your body. He needs to take care of you and you need to do the same.
