22 June has become one of the biggest mass movements in the quest for good health and well-being and events are organized all over the world to showcase Yoga, which has been acknowledged as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO.

During the last four years, a number of cities in Bosnia & Herzegovina have been enthusiastically celebrating the International Day of Yoga and this year’s celebrations will build on the success of earlier events.
