Background on the International Day of Yoga 2016

FIRSTLY, WHAT IS YOGA?

Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice. Practice of Yoga leads to a holistic approach to health and humanity. Yoga postures and conscious breathing practice has proved to prevent and cure numerous diseases as well leading to a happy and healthy life. An individual practicing yoga in its real form and purity is known as a Yogi.

According to Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev: Yoga does not mean some physical postures: twisting oneself into some impossible postures only. Yoga means to be in perfect tune. Your body, mind and spirit and the existence are in absolute harmony. When you fine-tune yourself to such a point where everything functions so beautifully within you, naturally the best of your abilities will just flow out of you.

Yesterday, the Indian High Commission to Kenya officials, the Local Organizing Committee together with top University of Nairobi toured the venue to access the level of preparedness and were satisfied with security and other arrangements.
