Going inside, outside

Somerset West yoga instructor, Tanya Olivier.

International Yoga Day was celebrated across the world on Sunday June 21, with enthusiasts from Cape Town to Kathmandu to Paris, all taking part in socially-distanced poses. The day has been celebrated annually since 2015, since its inception in the United Nations General Assembly. Yoga is a physical, mental and spritual practice which originated in India, and has experienced a resurgence of popularity in recent times, and is also being used in schools, homes for the elderly, and prisons, for example, to promote wellness, strength, flexibility and mindfulness.
