The International Day of Yoga

International Yoga Day 2021 will be celebrated on Monday, June 21, 2021. The International Day of Yoga has been celebrated annually on 21 June since 2015, following its inception in the United Nations General Assembly in 2014.Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice which originated in India. The Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, in his UN address suggested the date of 21 June, as it is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and shares a special significance in many parts of the world.

Yoga at Home and Yoga with Family

International Yoga Day theme is “Yoga at Home and Yoga with Family”. You know the whole world is going through COVID-19 pandemic and almost every country has imposed lockdown in a certain form. In this situation, it is hard or impossible for people to go outdoor for exercise or yoga even if the lockdown is getting softer in some parts of the world. Even if lockdown gets lighter, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports reveal that Corona Virus won’t spare the world for many years. In this situation, it is risky to go outside and take part in group activities. Social distancing and a strong body immune system are the only available cures that we should embrace. International Day of Yoga 2021 theme focuses upon telling people to stay motivated at home and adopt a healthy lifestyle by doing exercise and yoga. People are getting fatter and desperate at home because they feel like caged animals. Exercise helps us to stay optimistic and yoga helps us to explore new ideas to spend time and earn money without going outside. Thus, venue of this Yoga Day is our home. Let’s appreciate the theme 2021 of International Yoga Day and practice yoga at home until this curse of COVID-19 leaves us.

The Ministry of Ayush has issued many directions on how to conduct the Yoga Day through Online Mode. Kala Ashram Ayurveda Medical College & Hospital is also conducting the same through Online mode ensuring the participation of all students, staff and their family and spreading the importance of Yoga in this Covid Time.
