International Day of Yoga (IDY)-2019!
Yoga offers numerous rewards that improve our health and secure us peace of mind. It improves our performance at workplace, has a positive impact on our personal relationships and helps us to maintain harmony with the surroundings in which we live.
As is well-known, the fifth International Day of Yoga falls on 21st June 2019. The observation of IDY started in 2015, following a decision of the United Nations to observe 21st June as the day dedicated to Yoga. It is matter of pride to all Indians that this decision came at the behest of the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, who proposed this in his speech to the UN General Assembly in September 2014.
Like previous years, millions of people in over 200 countries are expected to participate in the IDY this year also. Yoga has something to offer to everyone, be it a hopeful child, an aspiring youth, a parent, or senior citizens. IDY is already the country’s greatest mass movement for public health, and participating in it is an inspiring way to get introduced to Yoga.
IDY is for all of us. The thrust of the IDY observation is on harmonious mass yoga demonstrations on 21st June 2019.Community-driven IDY events are taking place in thousands of venues and virtually every neighbourhood across the country on that day.The Ministry of AYUSH invites you to join the IDY movement by selecting an appropriate IDY event near you and participating in the same.
