           June 21 has been announced as International Yoga Day by UN General Assembly President Sam Kutesa. Over 170 countries have supported the proposal of the International Yoga Day, which shows the sum of the invisible and visible benefits of Yoga in the people of world.

             Yoga is an ancient art which was originated in India around five thousand years ago. Yoga is a good practice to keep our mind and body healthy. It improves our lifestyle by energizing our body in every way possible. It brings our body parts together to make a balance of body, mind and soul. 
Making people aware of the benefits of Yoga is the main aim of the World Yoga Day. How yoga can be helpful in making our life better, keeping our body disease free and contributing to the national development effectively are some of the main things that we should learn on this day. 

I will be happy to know if it is of any help!!
