On June 21st, the global community unites to celebrate International Yoga Day, a day dedicated to the transformative practice of yoga. This celebration not only highlights the physical benefits of yoga but also its profound impact on mental clarity and emotional stability.

Most Yoga practitioners are well aware that ‘Yoga’ is not just a physical exercise of holding a posture and controlling the breath. It is a well-integrated methodology for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual evolution. At IIM Bangalore, we embrace this occasion of International Yoga Day to emphasize the importance of holistic health from the perspective of a working executive.
