Happy International Yoga Day 2021. In the past few years, yoga has become one of the most popular forms of exercise for the mind and the body. Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘yog’, which means ‘union’. It is extremely beneficial in improving the blood flow, agility and allowing one to achieve a few moments of mental clarity and calmness. International Yoga Day 2021 is celebrated every year on June 21 since 2015, and the existence of this day can be credited to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the United Nations. During his 2014 address at the United Nations General Assembly, PM Modi suggested that a day celebrating and practising yoga must be globally recognised.
June 21, 2021, will mark the seventh edition of International Day of Yoga, and the theme this year is, ‘Yoga for well-being’. It is relevant for our times in a society that is still recovering from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The effect of the Covid-19 pandemic was not just physical, it also left a lasting impact on people’s mental health, with many left in psychological suffering, depression, and anxiety. Yoga can help people in dealing with such crises, boost immunity and help to fight any respiratory disorders.
Here are a few quotes and wishes that you can share on social media, this International Day of Yoga:
