Join us with your family for The International Day of Yoga

Yoga is an invaluable ancient Indian practice with numerous benefits to both physical and mental health. It is a privilege to write to you against the backdrop of the International Day of Yoga (IDY) -2020, which is just a few days away.

Many of our fellow-citizens have been asking this question of late: I want to be a part of IDY -2020; but what should I do for it? This message tries to clarify the position.

Yoga is an invaluable ancient Indian practice with numerous benefits to both physical and mental health. Given the context of the current COVID-19 pandemic including restrictions on the movement of people and a slowdown in economic activity, the benefits offered by Yoga have become especially important for physical and mental wellbeing.

Of particular importance are its proven benefits on general health and immunity enhancement, along with its globally accepted role as a stress buster.

The mass performance of the Common Yoga Protocol (CYP)-one of the most popular Yoga programmes across the world-will remain at the heart of the International Day of Yoga (IDY) like always, but this year IDY will be observed in a non-congregative manner. Therefore, you and your family are requested to join thousands of others on this day from your respective homes by doing the 45- minute long CYP drill at 7.00 AM on 21st June 2020. It is designed to be easily adoptable by the majority of the people irrespective of age and gender, and can be learnt through simple training sessions, even through online classes (individuals facing health issues are advised to consult a physician before taking up Yoga practice)..
