People all across the world observe world yoga day on 21st June every year. India has been celebrating international yoga day since 2015 under the current Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. In the wake of the ongoing pandemic and due to social distancing measures, the United Nations kept “Yoga for Health-Yoga at Home” as the theme for this year.
Addressing the nation on Yoga Day 2020, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the world has now restored to virtual yoga due to COVID-19. He further said that Yoga unifies people and the world, thus it is helping us in fighting the pandemic; he also added the importance of the ‘pranayamas’ in building immunity and resolve respiratory illness.
PM Modi also started an online competition called ‘My Life My Yoga” wherein he asked the citizens to participate in the competition by uploading their yoga videos. Yoga is one of the best ways to maintain physical and mental health, the major asset is that you don’t require any equipment; all you need is some space and a mat.
