  • India gears up to celebrate 4th International Yoga Day

Four years ago, in his address to the General Assembly, Prime Minister Modi said: "Yoga is an invaluable gift from our ancient tradition". Last year, after inaugurating the programme at the Assam Rifles ground, the then Governor Lt Gen (retired) Nirbhay Sharma said: "Some believe that yoga is a religious activity impinging on other faiths". Okay. Let's not overwork our already stressed out brains- it's International Yoga Day. "Yoga has become one of the unifying forces of the world".

Extending his greetings on the occasion, the president said, "On International Yoga Day greetings to all those practising yoga across the globe".

The noted Yoga guru Ramdev will also be conducting a yoga session in the city of Kota.

Troops guarding the world's highest battleground on the Siachen glacier, in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir, did yoga routines at an altitude of around 18,000 feet (5,486 m).

However in its present-day use, yoga is often no more than a form of exercise, Michael says.

21st of June marks the International Yoga Day and the country has welcomed it with open arms.

Theresa Ugalahia, one of the few certified psychiatrists in Nigeria, said people are beginning to appreciate the benefits of the practice in the country. "We have been getting a very positive response from all communities and I am aware of several eminent Emirati friends who regularly practice yoga", he said.

Mr. Modi said yoga presents a ray of hope for future of the world. "In Yoga, we have the flawless solution to the problems we face, either as individuals or in our society".

According to Ambassador Suri, Yoga is already popular in the UAE and we see more and more people recognizing its contribution to mental and physical well-being.

Addressing the gathering at Friday, he said, "In today's fast changing time, Yoga binds together a person's body, brain and soul, hence making one experience a feeling of peace". It is a passport for wellness.

Since the proclamation, the International Day of Yoga has continued to grow in popularity as the profile of the practice continues to rise as more than just an exercise but as a great tool for staying healthy.
