The 6 th International Yoga Day will be marked at a time when the global outbreak of COVID-19 has upended lives and disrupted lifestyles of people across the world. The message of Yoga in promoting physical, emotional and mental health and the well-being of humanity have never been more relevant. There is a growing trend of people all over the world embracing Yoga to fight social isolation and depression during the pandemic. Yoga can also play a significant role in the psycho-social care and rehabilitation of COVID-19 patients in quarantine and isolation. They are particularly useful in allaying their fears and anxiety.
Recognizing this important role of Yoga, the Permanent Mission of India in New York, together with Yoga gurus and therapists, has created a special Yoga module, “Yoga for Health - Yoga at Home”, on the occasion of 6 th International Day of Yoga. The module includes simple Yoga exercises, breathing and meditation practices designed for all age- groups to improve physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. It can be practiced at home.
