International Day of Yoga

Several scholars have noted that yoga had been packaged so well as a defense against illness and aging that it is “easy to lose sight of its real purpose — spiritual liberation.”. A 2008 market study in Yoga Journal reports that some 16 million Americans practice yoga.
The United Nations proclaimed 21 June as the International Day of Yoga.
Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness.
Today it is practiced in various forms around the world and continues to grow in popularity.
Recognizing its universal appeal, on 11 December 2014, the United Nations proclaimed 21 June as International Yoga Day by resolution 69/131.
International Yoga Day aims to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga.
"By proclaiming 21 June as the International Day of Yoga, the General Assembly has recognized the holistic benefits of this timeless practice and its inherent compatibility with the principles and values of the United Nations." - United Nations Secretary-General BAN KI-MOON
