Today is International Day of Yoga. This year's theme, Yoga for well-being, emphasizes how the practice of Yoga promotes holistic health.
The pandemic has impacted physical health and exacerbated psychological suffering and mental health problems, including depression and anxiety.
The message of Yoga in promoting both physical and mental well-being has never been more relevant. Yoga is about much more than the asanas (physical postures).
As Baron Baptiste wrote in his book Journey Into Power:
That's what this process of yoga does. It wrings you from the inside out. It brings up everything that's in there - the fears, doubts, frustrations, toxins, strengths, beliefs, potential - and exposes it either to be released or to be used for growth. It challenges physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually and gives you the opportunity to experience every part of yourself on a whole new level.
