What have you been doing to keep active and mentally balanced during this pandemic?

21 June marks International Yoga Day. This year's theme "Yoga for well-being" focuses on how the practice of Yoga promotes the individual’s holistic health. Yoga is a secular ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India some 6,000 years ago. Derived from Sanskrit, the word “yoga” means to unite, symbolizing the body's union and consciousness.

The International Day of Yoga is a good time to highlight the benefits of yoga, with an emphasis on staying motivated at home and adopting a healthy lifestyle by doing exercise and yoga amidst the global pandemic. Benefits go beyond physical advantages like improved heart health, better joint health, increased flexibility, stress relief and mental wellness. The practice of Yoga is suited for men and women of all ages. What's more, all you need is a mat to get started. No more excuses for not having enough space at home for your home workouts.

Read on to find out where you can pick up this practice from certified yogis, without spending a single cent, as well as yoga gear to help you along your journey to achieving mind/body balance. And if you are one of those who have problems finding the right fit in your workout gear, we have just the perfect recommendation for you! Read on to find out more!
