If you need a bit of weekend cheer, we are absolutely able to provide that for you today! We are delighted to be able to share the wonderful news with you that yoga has now been added to the very prestigious Unesco list of intangible world heritages :)

It was wonderfully added in recognition of its influence on Indian society, from health and medicine to education and the arts, the world heritage committee said in a statement. “Designed to help individuals build self-realisation, ease any suffering they may be experiencing and allow for a state of liberation, [yoga] is practised by the young and old without discriminating against gender, class or religion,” Unesco added in a tweet.
