Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness. Today yoga is practiced in various forms around the world and continues to grow in popularity.
Adopted with a record number of 177 co-sponsoring countries, UN General Assembly Resolution A/RES/69/131 designated 21 June International Day of Yoga. This year will mark the first-ever observance of this Day.
The resolution notes “the importance of individuals and populations making healthier choices and following lifestyle patterns that foster good health.”
“By proclaiming 21 June as the International Day of Yoga, the General Assembly has recognized the holistic benefits of this timeless practice and its inherent compatibility with the principles and values of the United Nations,” said the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in his message for the Day.
The World Health Organization also urged its Member States to help their citizens reduce physical inactivity, which is among the top ten leading causes of death worldwide, and a key risk factor for non-communicable diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer and diabetes.
The Day will be observed by many UN offices worldwide and at UN Headquarters in New York with a special event sponsored by the Permanent Mission of India to the UN. The event will include statements by dignitaries and a demonstration of some simple asanas (yoga poses). It will be available through live webcast at webtv.un.org
“On this first-ever International Day of Yoga, let us see the benefits of this practice in terms of individual well-being, as well as our collective efforts to improve public health, promote peaceful relations and usher in a life of dignity for all,” concluded the UN Secretary-General.
