“Every year, the 21st of June is celebrated worldwide as the International Day of Yoga (IDY). This year, the IDY arrives in the middle of a health emergency. Yoga is especially relevant in this situation, since its practice leads to both physical and mental well-being. Of particular importance in these difficult times are the following two proven benefits which the public can gain from Yoga – the positive impact on general health and immunity enhancement and its globally accepted role as a stress buster,” the ministry said a statement.

As in the previous years, the harmonious mass practice of Yoga will take place at 7 am on June 21, the International Yoga Day. However, people will join the same from their respective homes in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic threat. It is also expected that adherents, practitioners and followers of Yoga will also join the digital platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at this time with their Yoga demonstration in a spirit of harmony.
