“Yoga is like music: the rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.”

The practice of Yoga has existed in India since ancient times. Over 5,000 years ago, the Indus-Sarasvati civilization in Northern India formed the foundations of Yoga. Yoga was originally referenced in the Rig Veda, the earliest religious literature. India is also known as the land of yogis. As we celebrate the 8th International Yoga Day on 21st June 2022, let us remember some of the greatest Yoga Gurus and the gems of India.

Why is International Yoga Day Celebrated? 

Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Yuj,’ which means ‘unity’. The word yoga completely justifies its meaning as it brings the mind and body together. Yoga is one of the oldest (5000-year-old) treatments that offer a comprehensive approach to mental and physical well-being. International Yoga Day is celebrated on 21st June every year. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi proposed the idea of International Yoga Day during his speech at the 69th session of the General Assembly in 2014. Therefore, International Yoga Day is celebrated every year to spread awareness about the importance & benefits of Yoga. 

The Theme of International Yoga Day 2022

Every year, International Yoga Day is celebrated with different themes. For instance, the theme for the year 2021 was ‘Yoga for Wellness’, and for 2020, it was ‘Yoga at Home and Yoga with Family’. The theme for International Yoga Day 2022 is ‘Yoga for Humanity’. A report by India TV quotes that: “The 8th edition of IDY will be organized in India and across the globe on the theme of ‘Yoga for Humanity’ which was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his Mann Ki Baat address and will focus on ‘Brand India at Global Stage’ while showcasing its iconic places. The IDY observation is based on a harmonious mass yoga demonstration of a custom-made 45-minute protocol namely, Common Yoga Protocol (CYP).”

Benefits of Yoga

There are uncountable benefits of yoga. It is observed that the individuals who practice yoga on a daily basis tend to live longer and lead a healthy lifestyle. “Yoga is not a work-out, it is a work-in, and this is the point of spiritual practice to make us open up our hearts and focus our awareness so that we can know what we already know and be who we already are.” In short, yoga helps in- 

  • improving flexibility and posture. 
  • reducing stress and getting quality sleep.
  • gaining physical strength.
