Around 25 crore people across the world are expected to participate in various events, doing yoga in unison towards better health and wellness for all, Union Ayush Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, who has joined PM Modi in Mysuru, had earlier said.

Sonowal said that a flagship programme in coordination with the Ministry of External Affairs is being organised for a mass Yoga Protocol world over on IDY 2022 following the movement of the Sun. “The programme will commence at 3 AM IST and would continue till 10 PM. Starting in Fiji, Brisbane, Australia and New Zealand, it will end in San Francisco, USA and Toronto, Canada,” he said. “Seventy-nine countries and United Nations’ organisations are onboard for the programme with full-hearted support of Indian missions abroad. The programme is being telecast live on DD India for 16 time zones,” Sonowal said.
The minister said that mass Common Yoga Protocol (CYP) demonstrations will be conducted at 75 iconic locations branding/showcasing India through IDY activities. This programme would be part of ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’. The programme will include a digital exhibition in Dasara Ground, Mysuru on June 21 and 22 to showcase a ‘state of the art’ development in Yoga. “An interactive feature of doing Yoga with PM is also provided, wherein anyone can perform virtually Yoga with animated videos of PM and can take virtual selfie with the PM. “In addition, through an interactive tool the concentration level of an individual can be checked. Further, a static exhibition covering all Ayush streams and Yoga start-up is also organised,” the minister said.
Reports stated that a total of 20 Yoga asanas (postures) will be performed today. As the International Yoga Day is corresponding with the 75th year of Independence, the Centre has decided to perform Yogic exercises in front of the 75 heritage structures across the country.

The International Day of Yoga is celebrated every year on June 21, which is also the summer solstice — the longest day of the year. The idea for the day was proposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his speech at the 69th session of the General Assembly in 2014. The aim of International Yoga Day is to spread awareness about the benefits of yoga.
The idea for the day was proposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his speech at the 69th session of the General Assembly in 2014. “Yoga embodied the unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It was not about exercise, but about discovering the sense of oneness with self, the world and nature,” he had said. For those who practice yoga on a daily basis, it is not just an exercise but a way of living. According to the United Nations, yoga stands as an emblem for creating balance and harmony.
