In today's age, why is yoga emphasized so much? We are in an age where everyone is running around and have no time for themselves. While working round the clock is fine, it is important to work on your body as well. A healthy mind and body will always productive. Yoga is centuries old and has been practiced since early ages but its prominence has come to light past few decades. Why so? There is an endless need and a never-ending wish and want list that we have. In order to achieve that people forget to take care of their own body. Maintaining a healthy mind and body is the need of the hour.
