Jyotiraditya Scindia to inaugurate Yoga demonstration event at Gwalior Fort on June 21

New Delhi:

More than 2,000 people will perform Yoga demonstration at the Gwalior Fort on June 21 to celebrate International Day of Yoga. The event will be inaugurated by Minister of Civil Aviation Jyotiraditya M. Scindia.   

At the initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) took a historic decision in 2014 to declare June 21 as the International Day of Yoga (IDY). This worldwide acceptance of Yoga is a matter of pride for our country, as Yoga is an integral part of our nation’s cultural and spiritual heritage.

This year International Day of Yoga is falling in the “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav” year for which the Ministry of Ayush has planned to observe the International Day of Yoga at 75 iconic locations across India which will also help in branding India on a global scale.

The theme for this year IDY 2022 is “Yoga for Humanity” as it depicts how during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, yoga served the humanity in alleviating the suffering and in the emerging post-COVID geo-political scenario too, bring people together through compassion, kindness, foster a sense of unity and build resilience among people world over.

Common Yoga Protocol, Lecture on Yoga by Experts, Yoga Demonstration will be some of the activities to be undertaken at the event.
