Over the decades, yoga has been widely accepted all over the world as a physical, mental and spiritual practice, which originated in ancient India. There are various schools of thought but one thing is common – yoga has become a way of life. In India and abroad, it has become quite popular and no doubt, the global celebration of International Day of Yoga on Jun 21 is a gentle reminder.
Notably, among the stalwarts in the world of Yoga, Grand Master Akshar has become an institution on his own. Hailing from the oldest school of Himalayas, he is an internationally acclaimed Yogic Master and visionary.
