On the occasion of the 10th International Yoga Day, Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel on Friday said the state government will establish 51 ‘Yoga Studios’ to promote Yoga, calling it an ancient practise which “benefited people immensely” during COVID.

“This year, we are planning to establish 51 state-run Yoga Studios to provide a one-stop health solution to the people. Gujarat government is committed to taking yoga to every corner of the state,” he said.

State Yog Board and BSF jointly hold event

The official release stated that this is the first time Yoga Day is being celebrated at Nadabet, said an official release.

In his address to yoga participants at the event, the CM said yoga is a system of exercises for the body and for controlling breathing.

Yoga, best solution for stressful life: CM Patel

Emphasising yoga as the best solution for today’s stressful life, he said that it has become a public movement under PM Modi’s leadership. “After the coronavirus pandemic, people's approach towards India's ancient heritage has changed drastically. Yoga has now been widely accepted as a weapon to fight coronavirus. During lockdown, when people remained indoors, they stayed healthy by performing yogic asanas. Yoga helped people boost their immunity and strengthen their lungs,” said the CM.

On the occasion, Patel informed the participants that nearly 1.25 crore people are taking part in Yoga Day events organised across the state on Friday. Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Amit Shah performed yoga at an event held in Ahmedabad with other participants, said an official release, adding that Union Jal Shakti Minister CR Paatil took part in a yoga programme in Surat. Other ministers, MLAs, MPs, and BJP office-bearers also took part in yoga events across Gujarat, said officials.
