World Yoga Day 2024 | अन्तर्राष्ट्रिय योग दिवस

International Yoga Day, World Yoga Day, and International Day of Yoga are all the same thing and are worldwide events approved by the United Nations. World Yoga Day 2024 is on 21 June.

Yoga is well known for its extraordinary health benefits and is getting accepted globally as well.

This event aims to promote and raise awareness of Yoga around the world. It also suggests that Yoga can help relieve stress and build a healthy body and a suitably designed lifestyle. Additionally, everyone can practice Yoga and enjoy the benefits.


Yoga has a history of over 6000 Years in ancient India. However, Indian UN Ambassador Ashoke Mukerji witnessed interest in Yoga from almost all nations. That’s when the United Nations considered declaring 21 June as World Yoga Day. Since then, the day has been observed worldwide as Yoga Day. India has had a deep-rooted history with Yoga since the 5th decade. Likewise, Nepal also celebrates World Yoga Day with dedication and enthusiasm.

The day is also marked as the longest day of the year(summer solstice), and this particular day is chosen for Yoga Day.


With an aim to achieve a healthy life, the theme for World Yoga Day 2024 is ‘Humanity.’ 

The theme holds good for the current COVID-19 pandemic, where Yoga can help.
