I’m sending my warm greetings to all yoga enthusiasts in Egypt on the occasion of the 6th International Day of Yoga.
Yoga, a gift of ancient India to the world, has become a way of life for millions across the world. As a mark of the immense popularity of Yoga, the world commemorates 21 June every year as the International Day of Yoga.
In the present times, where people all around the world are adapting their lives to the new reality of a pandemic, yoga has become even more relevant. It has helped many maintain a healthy routine during the long periods of lockdown and boosted their immunity and sense of balance in these extraordinary times. The theme of this year’s International Day of Yoga is Yoga at home and Yoga with family. Practicing Yoga together is a wonderful way to spend time with our loved ones.
Technology plays a key role in enabling the learning of Yoga, particularly during this time where social distancing is a necessity to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. In this regard, playlists of animated 3D videos of the Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi, a keen practitioner of Yoga, practicing various Asanas are available. These videos have been made available on YouTube and are available in the following languages:
Let us all contribute to the global healing process and make wellness a part of our lives by embracing Yoga. Kindly do share these videos to inspire others as well.
People at peace with themselves can build peaceful and healthy societies and a harmonious world.
