International Yoga Day 2022 Highlights: Yoga Is A Way Of Life, Says PM Narendra Modi

The term Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word "yuj," which means "union" or "to join." It is known as a spiritual disciple and is teamed with subtle science to establish a harmony between mind and body. The origin of Yoga can be traced back thousands of years before any faith or belief system came into existence. The idea is to be one with the universe and achieve the highest level of harmony. It is more of therapy or an exercise chain that is associated with health, fitness and overall well-being. In the religious texts, Lord Shiva is believed to be the first yogi or Adiyogi, and the first Guru or Adi Guru.

Yoga is not restricted to any particular region, religion, culture, or community and therefore, one can practice it for inner peace and wellbeing. There are numerous traditional schools of Yoga such as Jnana-yoga, Bhakti-yoga, Karma-yoga, Dhyana-yoga, Patanjala-yoga, Kundalini-yoga, Hatha-yoga, Mantra-yoga, Laya-yoga, Raja-yoga, Jain-yoga, Bouddha-yoga etc. Each of these schools is distinct and has a unique method of practice and principles.

Due to the immense popularity of yoga and the health benefits that it provides, many schools have introduced yoga as a part of their curriculum. International Yoga Day will be celebrated on 21 June and the theme for 2022 is 'Yoga For Humanity' which means 'Yoga for health of all'.

On 21 June 2022, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lead a mass Yoga event at the Mysuru Palace grounds in Karnataka on the International Day of Yoga, Union Ayush Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said on Friday, while addressing the media. He will join 15,000 yoga enthusiasts who will participate in the event, Mr Sonowal said.
