Yogasm: Healing Power of Yoga

International Yoga Day Blog

Today is the first ever International Yoga Day. Need a better occasion to start practicing yoga?

It is possible to slow down when we’re struggling to sit still.
It is possible to maintain your calm when your desk is loaded with work and your boss just can’t stop giving you more deadlines
It is possible to get away from whatever happened in office once you reach home.

This and much more. How?

By training yourself to control your mind. How?

By practicing yoga asanas.

There are a lot of myths about yoga. The most common one being that practicing yoga doesn’t make you lose weight. Or maybe Suryanamaskar does help. Ummm… no!
