Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word "yoga" comes from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing a union of body and mind.

Today yoga is practiced in various forms around the world and continues to grow in popularity, including in Poland.

Recognizing its universal appeal, on December 11, 2014, the United Nations proclaimed June 21 as International Day of Yoga.

The event aims to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga.

The most popular form of yoga practiced in Poland is hatha yoga based on the Iyengar method, or Iyengar yoga.

"Yoga is a wonderful form of exercise for your mind, your body and your spirit," Kirti Gahlawat, a yoga teacher and a former Yoga Ambassador at India's embassy in Warsaw, told Danuta Isler.

"It helps you to be on the path of healthy living and maintain balance," Gahlawat said.
