You cannot always control what goes on outside, but you can always control what goes on inside! Happy Yoga Day.”

The practice of yoga is believed to have started at the very dawn of civilization. The science of yoga has its origin thousands of years ago, long before the first religions or belief systems were born.
Shiva is regarded as the first yogi, or Adiyogi, and the first Guru, or Adi Guru, in yogic lore.


In the Himalayas, Adiyogi poured his profound knowledge into the legendary Saptarishis, or “seven sages.” The sages carried this powerful yogic science to different parts of the world, including Asia, the Middle East, Northern Africa, and South America. Interestingly, modern scholars have noted and marvelled at the close parallels found between ancient cultures across the globe. However, it was in India that the yogic system found its fullest expression. Agastya, the Saptarishi who travelled across the Indian subcontinent, crafted this culture around a core Yogic way of life.


As a combination of careful body postures and meditation, yoga can help you achieve harmony of the mind, body, and soul. In fact, it can boost your immunity and resistance to common illnesses, stress, and anxiety—just what you need these days.


Keeping the importance of yoga in mind, International Yoga Day is observed on the 21st of June every year in many countries around the world, including India. The event, which is the brainchild of PM Narendra Modi, was first celebrated on June 21st, 2015. Since then, on this day, India and other countries have organized many yoga-related events to increase awareness about the positive effects of this holistic practice.

International Yoga Day is an important event that is celebrated on June 21st across the globe with great enthusiasm. This year, the Ministry of Ayush has coined the theme “Yoga for Humanity”. The theme was selected with the aim of activating and inspiring the yoga community for sustainability and global development.


The International Yoga Day 2022 theme was announced by PM Narendra Modi on May 30th, 2022 in his monthly “Mann Ki Baat” address. The theme was selected keeping in mind the important role yoga has been playing in dealing with COVID-19. This holistic practice not only benefits the mind and body but also inculcates love, generosity, and compassion towards others.


As you already know, the pandemic has been one of the most trying times for many since 2020. Apart from affecting physical health, it causes a range of psychological and mental health issues. Pandemic-related restrictions led to stress, anxiety, and depression, and dealing with these issues proved to be challenging. It was during this time that more people around the world embraced yoga and meditation to promote their physical and emotional well-being. These holistic practices are still playing an important role in the recuperation of COVID-19 patients in isolation.

Hence, focusing on the theme “Yoga for Humanity”, India will organize special programs for children, women, specially-abled people, as well as transgenders this year. A large turnout is expected in villages/gram panchayats as well, thanks to Common Service Centres (CSC) that are promoting the Common Yoga Protocol (CYP) to spread awareness about the benefits of yoga among the masses.
