For International Day of Yoga 2022, Yogis gather for an in-person celebration

While practicing yoga is possible all by your lonesome, practicing it with others brings with it a special kind of energy.

Which is why this year's International Day of Yoga in Metro Manila is extra special.

After two years of virtual celebrations, the Embassy of India in Manila brought together some 200 yogis from different parts of Metro Manila at the Music Hall of SM Mall of Asia for an in-person celebration on Tuesday.

For 75 minutes, yogis shared positive energy with fellow practitioners, bringing harmony between the mind and body through a series of postures called "Asana" and breathing exercises dubbed as "Pranayama."

With the pandemic affecting many a person's mental health and well-being, being able to practice Yoga together with a solid community felt truly special.

Since 2015, Yoga practitioners and enthusiasts have gathered together every June 21 to celebrate the International Day of Yoga.
