The International Yoga Day is celebrated by the whole world on 21st June every year starting from 2015 and was initiated by the Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi. International Yoga Day has been an enormous success since its launching, and huge programs are organized every year with a massive number of presents in the programs. On the first yoga day, that is, 21st June 2015, around 35,985 people, including the prime minister himself, gathered on Rajpath, New Delhi, and practiced near about 21 yoga poses for over 35 minutes.
Yoga is vital in an individual’s life to make their life organized and help them to keep their body fit and mind in peace. Taking pills and health supplements does not have the same effect on the body as yoga does, and that is why yoga practitioners encourage others to avail yoga as a part of their daily routine. The International Yoga Day has helped in promoting the idea and the benefits of practicing yoga and has encouraged thousands of people and is continuing to do the same. This year, the International Yoga Day 2021 will be celebrated on monday i.e. today, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the seventh such event at 6:30am. The theme for the International Day of Yoga this year is 'Yoga for wellness', a motto aligned to the current pre-occupations. As it is an event of a global scale, preparations for the International Yoga Day event usually begin 3-4 months prior, ultimately culminating in a grand programme where millions of people come together to observe the spiritual history and significance of the day.
