International Yoga Day celebrations with seniors
Yoga means UNION in the ancient Sanskrit language. Yoga is a life style management system. The aim is to promote harmonious development in every aspect of the individual to balance with all. Yoga is basically to realize and experience union of joining of individual consciousness to the universal consciousness. Yoga is a perfect description of the science and philosophy to join Body & Mind.
