Marking the occasion, the Indian Armed Forces personnel performed Yoga at an altitude of 18,000 feet at the snow-covered mountain, across the country and also the other international deployed positions.
International Yoga Day is celebrated annually on June 21 to
highlight the importance of yoga and the pivotal role it plays in rejuvenating
our mind and the body, leading towards a healthier lifestyle.
This year, the theme of the occasion is ‘Yoga For Wellness’, and will focus on practicing Yoga for physical and mental well-being. Since 2014, the occasion has been observed in mass gatherings in different parts of the country.
Last year and this year, however, the lead event has been presented in a televised programme due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The observation of the International Day of Yoga is a global activity and the preparatory activities normally start 3-4 months prior to June 21. Millions of people are introduced to Yoga in the spirit of a mass movement as part of IDY observation every year.
