June 21 is the International Day of Yoga as declared by the United Nations. Yoga is a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual practice that comes from India. While it originated there, it is now practiced all over the world in it’s various forms.
To celebrate this day, the Isha Foundation has released a few special yoga practices for free for all to learn.
I was first introduced to the Isha Foundation over 3 years ago. A friend of mine thought it might help me to be more calm. I followed a guided meditation for a few months and noticed many positive changes including better concentration and focus. I decided that I wanted to learn more so I flew to Singapore to the Inner Engineering Program. From there, I went on to attend an advanced program in Tennessee.
Lucky for you, you don’t have to travel anywhere to experience these special practices. Here are 3 that you can practice from the comfort of your own home.
