The 9th International Day of Yoga is being celebrated worldwide on Wednesday, June 21.

This year the theme of Yoga Day is – ‘Yoga For Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ i.e. yoga for the welfare of all in the form of ‘One World-One Family’.

The word “Yoga” is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj meaning “to join”, symbolising the unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between human and nature, and a holistic approach to health and well-being.
