International Yoga Day is an annual event that has its roots in an Indian context, but is commemorated every year on 21 June 2021. The idea of International Yoga Day was conceived by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who proposed the concept on September 27, 2014, during his speech at the UN General Assembly. The resolution to adopt June 21 as the International Yoga Day was introduced by India's Ambassador, Ashoke Kumar Mukerji.

International Yoga Day 2021:

This resolution can be viewed as a triumphant moment for Indian soft power as it received support from 177 nations, the highest number of co-sponsors for any UN Resolution. Currently, countries ranging from Canada to the USA participate in this event.

At one level, International Yoga Day is about integrating body, mind and soul, as yoga is an ancient Indian tradition combining bodily agility with mental relaxation techniques. Broadly, the significance of Yoga Day can be seen in the light of spreading awareness and taking tangible steps, on an issue of well-being, which is the need of the hour.


According to the UN website, the theme for International Yoga Day 2021 is 'Yoga for well-being', i.e. how the practice of Yoga can promote the holistic health of every individual. With the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbating psychological suffering and mental health problems, many people have been embracing Yoga to stay healthy and to fight isolation and depression.
