The history of yoga stretches as far as back to ancient India and today it is being practiced all over the world to help people relax, boost immunity and increase their flexibility. Also, yoga can actually help improve the health of your heart, as per the research done at Harvard University in the US and Eramus University, Netherlands. Even the United Nations General Assembly adapted an India-led resolution declaring June 21 as 'International Yoga Day'.
