As the first International Day of Yoga is being celebrated on June 21, we focus on this ancient practice that is about harmony between man and nature and a holistic approach to health and well-being. Some classical and authoritative texts on yoga are highlighted in our special feature. We review The Power of Yoga by Yamini Muthana, a book that balances technical and philosophical aspects of yoga and Yoga: Aligning to the Source, a film produced by Ministry of External Affairs and PSBT that explores yoga’s origins.
