Yoga as envisaged in Indian scriptures is an ancient method for spiritual experience. However, yoga is usually practiced for relaxation of body and mind and for achieving good health. In the last few years, with acceptance of 21st June as the International Yoga Day, the practice of yoga has become universal. Yoga has become part of many health fitness centers, where yoga is incorporated into the group instruction curriculum. Although some people still view yoga as a practice reserved for spiritual seekers looking for inner peace, yoga is rapidly being embraced by many in the modern societies as an alternative to increase the strength and endurance. But more importantly, yoga is slowly becoming part of the therapy for keeping good health, prevent decay and degeneration and as a supplement for the management of many lifestyle disorders.
