India leads the way in celebrating International Yoga Day

Parmenio Sano | 21 Giugno, 2017, 09:09

The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's gift to India and the world International Yoga Day is celebrated every year on June 21.

Today, June 21st, International Yoga Day is celebrating across the world.

Yoga, with its plentiful benefits, can help you alleviate stress, reduce the risk of life-threatening diseases and even help you feel better by preventing hair loss and increase your height. Proponents of the exercise say it is a 5,000-year-old physical, mental and spiritual practice with origins in India.

Lucknow is ready to break all previous records as this time over 55,000 volunteers are likely to take part in the International Yoga Day. The Ministry has also written letters to various Indian Ambassadors and Embassies and urged them to make the event successful.

Yoga and meditation amongst children can bring development, self confidence and also aid in managing their weight.

Mr. Modi also asserted that attaining "wellness" through yoga was more important than simply being physically fit. More than 50,000 people are at hand as he delivers a speech on the occasion, and then takes part in performing yoga.


The number of yoga practitioners has risen by about 20 per cent in the urban areas in the country, with women outnumbering men, but there is a dearth of trainers, a survey by industry body ASSOCHAM has found.

The United Nations (UN) General Assembly declared June 21 as International Day of Yoga by consensus after adopting a measure proposed by Prime Minister Modi. Shilpa, the yoga expert, now shares videos of basic exercises and guides one towards a healthy living. Since Mysuru is considered to be the yoga capital of India, this record aims to celebrate International Yoga Day in the flawless manner.

For the first time, Chinese and Indian yoga lovers have come together to celebrate yoga at the iconic Great Wall of China, ahead of Wednesday's International Day of Yoga.

Lucknow is likely to receive few showers in the morning which may affect the celebrations of Yoga day.

Those who will not be able to make it to the Ramabai Ambedkar ground will have an opportunity to perform yoga at any of the 11 parks across the city, selected for the event, where the event will be telecast live through LED TVs.
