International Yoga Day was celebrated at Ekya school ITPL to promote and help students understand its significance. Yoga is a mind & body workout with strengthening and stretching poses along with deep breathing techniques to relax the mind and body. Yoga is an invaluable gift of ancient Indian tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature and a holistic approach to health and well-being. The word yoga literally means union.yoga helps to control mind and body.
