Celebration of International Day of Yoga – 2018

The United Nations has declared 21 June as ‘International Day of Yoga’ and this has been started from 2015 at international level. Group Yoga Demonstration based on Common Yoga Protocol (CYP) is the centre-piece of activities related to the International Day of Yoga. The Asanas and practices forming part of the CYP have been codified in such a way so as to yield the maximum health and well-being rewards to a diverse group of people from different profiles of health and age etc.

To promote the adoption of CYP, the Ministry of AYUSH, Government of India has been sharing Yoga Prayer and Common Yoga Protocol videos on Social Media Platforms of Ministry of AYUSH. The URLs for the Social Media Platforms are as follows:

All school heads are requested to share the said links of video clips with all the stakeholders. This will serve to reach out to the people in large numbers, and in turn help disseminate this valuable information to benefit various strata of the population for their well-being.

The schools may contact Dr. Manjit Singh, Sports Cell, CBSE at [email protected] or [email protected] for any further query.
