With International Yoga Day falling on June 21, if you haven’t already jumped onto the bandwagon of this hugely popular practice, it’s time to do so.

Yoga is the practice of the mind and body with thousands of years of history in ancient Indian philosophy. It uses breathing techniques, meditation, stretching and exercising to train the body and mind to be more observant and aware of their own nature. The purpose is to achieve higher consciousness and self-regulation, but there’s also plenty of health benefits, including reduced stress, increased relaxation, an elevated mood and greater flexibility. But yoga is not a one-sized-fits-all practice. There are so many yoga styles — from physically demanding to easy and relaxing — to cater to different types of yogis.

If you’re intending to dip your toes into the peaceful waters of yoga, read on for a quick guide on what you need to know.
