International Yoga Day 2020: Date, Theme, History and Significance

International Yoga Day 2020 Date, Theme: The year of 2020 has been unprecedented for more than one reason. Right from the start of the decade, with the Covid-19 outbreak, fire outbreaks, airplane crashes, locust swarms and cyclones, the last six months have been tough. The pandemic has shown us the importance of immunity and healthy living. Yoga is something that brings these qualities together.

Every year, June 21 is recognised as International Yoga Day but due to social distancing measures adopted by most countries, the theme set by United Nations for this year is “Yoga for Health – Yoga at Home”. The World Health Organization mentions yoga as a means to improve health in its Global Action Plan on Physical Activity 2018–2030: More active people for a healthier world.
