International Yoga Day

The International Day of Yoga (IDY) is observed every year on June 21 to highlight its immense benefits for overall health and well-being. This observance was established by the United Nations in 2014.

PM Modi proposed the idea of a global day dedicated to yoga during his 2014 address to the United National General Assembly (UNGA). In December 2014, the UNGA passed a resolution declaring June 21 as ‘International Yoga Day’.

The United Nations describes yoga as an ancient practise with physical, mental, and spiritual elements, originating in India. The word ‘yoga’ comes from Sanskrit, meaning to join or unite, which signifies the integration of body and consciousness.

Let us resolve to adopt yoga as an integral part of our day-to-day living.”
