Yoga started in India and is a physical, mental, and spiritual exercise. The word "yoga" comes from the Sanskrit language and meaning "to connect." The United Nations officially recognized it on June 21. Yoga has exploded in popularity not only in India but all across the world. It's a chance to raise awareness about the health benefits of yoga. For individuals who practice yoga on a daily basis, it is claimed to be more than just an exercise.
According to the United Nations, yoga is a symbol of achieving balance and harmony. When yoga is used in communities and societies, it provides a way to live more sustainably.

It is about discovering a sense of oneness with yourself, the world, and nature, not about exercising. It is possible to improve our well-being by altering our lifestyle and cultivating consciousness. Let's work together to establish an International Yoga Day."

Why is June 21 designated as National Yoga Day?

Why Is Yoga Important?

Yoga has proven effective in keeping the body and mind in good health since the 5th century in India.
Yoga is a holistic method that focuses on all of the body's and mind's systems. The asanas are considered to strengthen and stretch the body, and as one's health improves, so does one's confidence. Pranayama is a superior and effective adjunct to asanas for regulating the purification of the internal system and organs. These physical techniques generate energy in the body, which is then funneled into meditation or Dhyan for stability, tranquilly, and quiet.


Shilpa Shetty teaches yoga
Even if you don't have a teacher, you can hire a celebrity to serve as your virtual instructor. Shilpa Shetty, an actor, producer, and fitness enthusiast, has a function on Amazon Alexa that allows users to attend classes from her. All you have to do is say to Alexa, "Alexa, open Shilpa Shetty yoga," and you'll be on your way.

Do yoga while listening to nature sounds
Yoga, like most other hobbies, is best practiced in a peaceful, distraction-free atmosphere, but this is easier said than done. However, Alexa can help you block out some of the background noise in your home so you can concentrate on your yoga asanas. Simply say "Alexa, open Nature Sounds" or "Alexa, play ocean/rain/forest sounds," and the Alexa-enabled device will play relaxing sounds.

Yoga with music to match
Playing appropriate music while doing yoga might make your sessions more fun. "Alexa, play yoga music" or "Alexa, play meditation music" will get your device to start playing music that is ideal for a yoga practice.

Headspace is an Alexa skill
It can be difficult to keep track of your yoga routine at times, which is why Alexa's Headspace skill exists. You can use it to access a new guided meditation and sleep exercises each day to help you stay peaceful and relaxed. Every day, ask Alexa to open Headspace and try out new routines.
