With its origin in India, Yoga is an impressive 5,000-year-old physical, mental and spiritual practice which aims to transform both body and mind.
Back in December 2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 21st as the International Day of Yoga. The call for June 21st as International Day of Yoga came from Hon’ble Indian Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi 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".
June 21, which is the Summer Solstice has special significance in many parts of the world. Mr. Narendra Modi had said that, "the date is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and "Yogi and mystic, Sadhguru notes the importance of this day in the yogic tradition: “On the day of the summer solstice, Adiyogi [the first yogi] turned south and first set his eyes on the Saptarishis or Seven Sages, who were his first disciples to carry the science of yoga to many parts of the world and thus International Yoga Day is now celebrated on June 21st every year.
