Swami Vivekananda Cultural Centre, Sydney celebrates International Yoga Day 2021

The International Day of Yoga (IDY) is observed on 21st June every year. 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 it is practiced in various forms around the world and continues to grow in popularity. Recognizing its universal appeal, on 11 December 2014, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 June as the International Day of Yoga by resolution 69/131. The core objective of celebrating International Day of Yoga is to raise awareness about benefits of practicing yoga and promote healthy lifestyle for better tomorrow.

The preparations for the IDY are already under way and we at the Consulate aims to bring more people into the fold of the activities of the IDY-2021, thereby spreading the rewards of Yoga in terms of physical and emotional well-being among all sections of the society. Despite the social distancing measures in place we propose to conduct it on virtual space with greater outreach through social media and other interfaces.

Thus, to commemorate International Day of Yoga 2021, Swami Vivekananda Cultural Centre (SVCC), Consulate General of India, Sydney is organising  various innovative video contests to be sent latest by June 15. Details mentioned below:-

SVCC requests everyone to participate as well as encourage their kids and friends to join in. These are free of charge participation contests. Winners will get prizes!
