International Day of Yoga at a Glance

As an official event recognized by the United Nations, the International Day of Yoga (IDY), World Yoga Day, or International Yoga Day, is celebrated on June 21st. It aims to raise awareness of yoga across the globe and share the importance of the practice with everyone. This year, the 10th anniversary of IDY, is organized around the theme of “Yoga for Women's Empowerment”, with the goal to transform yoga into a widespread movement that emphasizes women’s wellbeing and promotes global health and peace.

IDY reminds us that yoga is for everyone regardless of your beliefs, nationality, religion, race, or gender. It doesn’t matter what your current knowledge of yoga is, wherever you are on your journey of well-being, you can surely benefit from the abundant benefits it offers such as stress relief, a flexible body, a more mindful state of mind, and a healthier lifestyle in general.
