International Yoga Day 2024

18 May 2024 / By Rajendra Choudhary

Every year on June 21, the world unites to celebrate International Yoga Day, an event recognized by the United Nations to promote global health, harmony, and peace. This day is dedicated to the ancient practice of yoga, a gift from India to the world.

The Origin of Yoga

  • Yoga, a 5,000-year-old physical, mental, and spiritual practice, has its origins in India. It is a discipline that explores the very essence of existence, from the physical to the spiritual, helping individuals lead fulfilled lives.
  • The word 'Yoga' derives from Sanskrit and means to join or unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness. It is a holistic approach to health and well-being.

International Yoga Day

  • International Yoga Day was proposed by the Indian Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly in 2014. The proposal was accepted with overwhelming support, leading to the establishment of June 21 as International Yoga Day.
  • The day aims to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga. It is a celebration of the unity of mind, body, and spirit, and a testament to yoga's global popularity.

The Benefits of Yoga

  • Yoga is more than just a physical exercise. It has a meditative and spiritual core that improves mental health and eases stress and anxiety. It is a path to self-discovery, self-realization, and self-transformation.
  • Regular practice results in increased flexibility, improved respiration, enhanced cardiovascular health, and overall vitality. It also promotes mindfulness, helping individuals live in the present moment.

Celebrating Yoga Day

  • On International Yoga Day, millions of people across the globe come together to participate in various events and activities. These include yoga sessions, workshops, discussions, music, and meditation sessions that aim to educate and engage the public about the benefits of yoga.
  • In 2024, we are offering a free online yoga session on Yoga Day to encourage more people to experience the benefits of this ancient practice. This session is proudly powered by C7Physio, a leading provider of physiotherapy services.
