‘Yoga for Humanity’ chosen as theme for International Day of Yoga

The Ministry of Ayush has chosen the theme for the 8th IYD to be organised in India and across the globe on June 21, 2022. The main event of IDY 2022 demonstration will be held in Mysuru, Karnataka. The theme of last year’s IDY, organised during COVID-19 pandemic was “Yoga for wellness”.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the theme in his “Maan Ki Baat’ address. The theme for this year’s IDY has been selected after much deliberation/consultation and it appropriately portrays, how during the peak of COVID-19 pandemic, yoga served the humanity in alleviating the suffering and in the emerging post-covid geo-political scenario too, it will bring people together through compassion, kindness, foster a sense of unity and build resilience among people world over.

Union Minister for Ayush, Ports, Shipping & Waterways Sarbananda Sonowal said the Prime Minister has suitably announced this year’s IDY theme as “Yoga for Humanity”.

”As we are aware Yoga is a practice that brings joy, health, and peace from within, and it deepens a sense of continuous connection between an individual’s inner consciousness and the external world. IDY 2022 will be successful in propagating this theme appropriately,” he said.

The 8th edition of International Day of Yoga will see many firsts, one of them is an innovative programme named “Guardian Ring”, which will showcase the movement of the sun, participation of people performing Yoga will take place along with the movement of the sun from different countries, beginning from the east and marching towards west.
