 Every year 21st June is celebrated as International Yoga Day. The idea for celebrating a Day of Yoga was first proposed by our Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in 2014. During his speech he referred to Yoga as an "invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition" and it said that through yoga, a beautiful harmony between human and nature established. Since then we are celebrating 21st June as International Yoga Day. This year's theme is "Yoga for Wellness".

3- Improves blood circulation :

Yoga improves blood circulation in your body and gets more oxygen to different body cells. Inverted yoga poses as headstand, handstand, shoulder stand helps in encouraging venous blood circulation, especially from the legs and pelvis to flow back to the human heart. Twisting yoga postures helps to wring out venous blood from internal organs.

The blood pumps to the lungs is freshly oxygenated and this way, it helps keep the kidney healthy.

Yoga practice boosts haemoglobin levels in the blood and increases red blood cells which carry oxygen to the tissues. This eventually lowers the chances of strokes and heart attacks.

When you do stretchy yoga postures, it moves your organs around which increase the drainage of lymph that helps in fighting infection and virus attacks to the body. Yoga also helps to improve blood circulation to the brain.


4- Good for Bone Health 

The joint cartilage of our body is like a sponge. While doing yoga squeezes the areas of cartilage that usually less used. It gets proper nutrients when its fluid is squeezed out. You know our joints take a full range of motion during yoga practice.

Yoga helps in our back pain issue. Back problems usually happen because of the weakness of the back muscles and put extra pressure on the spine. There are specific Yoga poses that mainly focus on strengthening back muscles and helps in reducing back pain. When backbone and muscles are strong you count yourself in the fit human category.

Similarly, some yoga postures mainly focus on arms muscles. Yoga practice increases bone density in vertebrae.

Yogasanas that increases oxygen levels is advisable for chronic bronchitis patients. Some allergy and nasal problems can be cured with deep breathing yoga practices like Anulombilom, Kapalabhati, etc.

The chanting "Omkar" done during Yoga is much powerful and it balances the parasympathetic nervous system. It's amazing when done in a group.
