In case you needed it, here’s your reminder of how truly remarkable the ancient practice of yoga is. It’s so awesome that it’s now officially considered by UNESCO as an international heritage and treasure!

In a recent session of UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Committee for Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in Ethiopia, all 24 members unanimously voted to support India’s proposal to add yoga to the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

The nomination to add yoga to the list was submitted soon after the first official UN-sanctioned International Yoga Day was held in June 21, 2015.
