International Yoga Day

om symbolJune 21st marks International Yoga Day. The United Nations General Assembly declared this day of celebration in 2015 after a proposal by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In his address, Modi said:

“Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. This tradition is 5000 years old. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well being . Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.”

— Narendra Modi, UN General Assembly
