Yoga Day – Sadhguru's talk at United Nations
Sadhguru, founder of Isha Foundation, was at the United Nations – World Body Headquarters, New York, on June 20 where he spoke about how Yoga can help the world achieve sustainable development goals.
Yoga does not mean twisting your body, holding your breath, hanging upside down or something like this. Essentially, if you are using the very process of life as a stepping stone for a higher possibility, if every aspect of your life has become a process of growth and a staircase to move upward, then you are in yoga.

In the US, many universities are considering spiritual studies as main subjects of study. Even well known scientists have started to debate about spiritual and yoga.
Last year when I went to Kailash, we were at an altitude of over 16,000 feet for almost eight, ten days. Except for the Sherpas who always live in that altitude, I was the only one who did not take altitude-sickness medication. If you build your system with yoga practices, over a period of time, you can enjoy the benefits.
