To highlight the importance of yoga in our life, the International Day of Yoga is celebrated globally on June 21 every year. The idea of observing the International Day of Yoga was initiated by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The main reason behind celebrating yoga day on June 21 is that the date is the longest day in the Northern Hemisphere. Indian Ambassador Ashok Mukherjee introduced the draft resolution in the United General Assembly on December 11, 2014, and it got major support from 177 Member States.
On the same day, the United Nations designated June 21 as International Day of Yoga by resolution 69/131. Yoga has several benefits for human health. For physical and mental stability, one should practice yoga on a daily basis. The word ‘Yoga’ derived from the Sanskrit language and the meaning of the same is to unite or join. On June 15, 2015, the first International Day of Yoga was observed globally. PM Modi along with dignitaries of 84 nations participated in an event organised by the Ministry of Ayush. Around 35,985 people performed 21 yoga poses at Rajghat, New Delhi.
This year, the International Day of Yoga will be celebrated on June 21, Monday. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus lockdown, organising an event for practicing yoga outside will be difficult. Although, private and government organizations can hold several events virtually. But people can still celebrate International Day of Yoga 2021 with full spirit by sending a few latest Yoga Day wishes, greetings, WhatsApp messages, HD images, wallpapers, and SMS via online to motivate their loved ones to incorporate yoga in their daily routine.
