The North Lawn of UN Headquarters was converted into a temporary yoga studio on Tuesday as UN staffers stretched their minds and bodies in honour of the International Day of Yoga.

Swami Sivadasananda led the guided yoga class on the newly-restored lawn, which until a few months ago, was home to a temporary office building.

Healthy lives and wellbeing have been recognized as an essential aspect of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Swami Sivadasananda, Yoga Acharya and director of the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres in Europe led the UN class, and explained to Liz Scaffidi the benefits of yoga practice in today's stressful world.
