Modi congratulated people worldwide, highlighting yoga’s growing global impact over the past decade. He stated, “Today, from the land of Kashmir, I congratulate everyone around the world on International Yoga Day! Ten years ago, I proposed the celebration of International Yoga Day at the United Nations. India’s proposal was supported by 177 nations, which is a record in itself. In 2015, on Kartavyapath in Delhi, 35,000 people performed Yogasanas together.”

This year’s celebration emphasizes yoga’s profound impact on young minds and bodies, aiming to unite thousands in the practice of yoga to promote health and wellness globally. The theme, “Yoga for Self and Society,” highlights yoga’s role in fostering individual well-being and societal harmony.

This year’s celebrations are particularly expansive, featuring a notable event titled “Yoga for Space,” where ISRO centers and units will participate in programs practicing the Common Yoga Protocol (CYP). Additionally, Indian Embassies and Missions abroad will join the celebrations, reflecting yoga’s widespread influence.
