The International Day of Yoga has been celebrated annually on 21 June since 2015, following its inception in the United Nations General Assembly in 2014. Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice which originated in India.
The theme for the International Yoga Day 2021 is ‘Yoga for well-being’. This theme has been conceived to stress on the importance of the role of yoga in the care and treatment given to Covid-19 patients during the quarantine period.
I have to admit though, I probably will not participating this year. I went and hurt my pubic bone! We have…HAD…a mop that broke ages ago, but I used it this one LAST time. The handle keeps going up and down, the stopper, isn’t stopping it. So it’s really horrible to handle. Last time it made my back ache for a while. This time my back ached for a while AND I’ve somehow hurt my pubic bone…
So new mop.
In the meantime though. I can’t…it’s a weird feeling,lol
Did you know: Some facts about Yoga
Yoga is not a religion, it is connected to religion, and stems historically from Hinduism, but also to Jainism and Buddhism.
The practice of Yoga was started during the Indus-Sarasvati civilization in Northern India over 5,000 years ago. It was first mentioned in Rig Veda, a collection of texts that consisted of rituals, mantras, and songs which was mainly used by Brahmans, the Vedic priests.
Shiva is also known as Adiyogi Shiva, regarded as the patron god of yoga, meditation and arts.
The funny about Shiva being the God of Yoga, meditation and arts. Is how many white women, TERFs, especially practice Yoga, Meditation and consider themselves artsy or crafty. It’s funny because the God Shiva, has both Male and Female features. THE MORE YOU KNOW.
