United Nations – International Yoga Day – Sunday 21 June

dsym_int-yoga-leaflet_web

DSYM CELEBRATES INTERNATIONAL DAY OF YOGA
(In association with S-VYASA).

21 June was declared as the International Yoga Day by the United Nations General Assembly on 11 December 2014. Yoga, a 5,000-year-old physical, mental and spiritual practice having its origin in India, aims to transform body and mind.

The declaration came after the call for the adoption of 21 June as International Yoga Day by Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi during his address to UN General Assembly on September 27, 2014 wherein he stated:

“Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. 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 us deal with climate change. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.”

June 21, one of the two solstices, is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and has special significance in many parts of the world.

(S-VYASA – Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana)
