Yoga is relevant in our age. Far from being mystical and otherworldly, it is a teaching firmly grounded in the physiological realities of science.

The Dhakaites out there who have been grinding hard at the office or at their side hustles tend to believe the only gateway they can have is outside the concrete jungle.
