Health, we've always been told, is wealth.

Yet, our health is the one thing we ignore.

Yoga is the ideal way to work your way back to good health, both physically and mentally.

For the beginners, there are simple asanas that will ease you into a thoughtful daily exercise routine. As will breathing exercises, or pranayams.

There are exercises you can do at your desk. In the garden. On the terrace. In your compound. Or in your home.

There are exercises you can do when you travel for work. Or when you are on a holiday.

For the more adventurous and the more flexible, there are the advanced asanas you can learn.

This International Yoga Day, it's time to reclaim your health with rediffYogaGURUS.

Ask them your questions and they will share their knowledge with you.
