International Yoga Day 2021: International Yoga Day is observed every year on 21 June. The day came into existence in 2015 after being declared unanimously by the United National General Assembly (UNGA). It was Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who first came up with the idea that June 21 should be recognised as International Yoga Day because it is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. It was proposed by PM Modi during his speech at the UNGA in 2014.
This and last year, the Covid-19 pandemic has led to many physical and mental health challenges such as isolation, stress, anxiety and depression. Multiple health experts suggest the ancient practice of yoga, which has its roots in India can help from increasing ones immunity to improving the function of vital organs of the body.
