3 health benefits of practicing Yoga

Yoga was first introduced to the modern world after Swami Vivekananda traveled and spoke at the Parliament of World Religions which was held in Chicago in 1893. Not only did it introduce Yoga to the west, it also led to re-invigoration of the practice of Yoga in India. Since then numerous Indian and Western health experts have come forward talking about the benefits of Yoga. Recently the International Day of Yoga’ was celebrated across the world with participants from very diverse countries like Tunisia, Venezuela and New Zealand.
