In context of the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, slowdown in daily activities and restrictions on the movement of people, this year’s observance of International Day of Yoga will aim to highlight the health-building and stress-relieving aspects of Yoga.
- To facilitate this, the Ministry of AYUSH is organizing a trainer-led session which will be telecasted on Doordarshan on 21st June at 6:30AM for people to follow and practice in solidarity.
- The Ministry of AYUSH is also promoting the theme “Yoga at Home, Yoga with Family” in its IDY activities.
- Every year, the 21st of June is celebrated worldwide as the International Day of Yoga (IDY).
- This year IDY comes in the middle of a health emergency. Hence the observation of IDY has become a search for good health and peace of mind, this time.
