International Yoga Day 2020: Quotations, Slogans, Wishes and Messages
International Yoga Day is celebrated every year on June 21 to spread awareness about the important health benefits of practising yoga. The word yoga is derived from the Sanskrit language which means to unite or to join. The theme for International Yoga Day 2020 is 'Yoga at Home and Yoga with Family', keeping in view the COVID-19 pandemic to avoid celebrations and mass gatherings.
On September 27, 2014, Prime Minister Modi during his speech at the UN General Assembly laid the idea of celebrating a 'Yoga Day'. He stated that June 21 is the longest day in the northern hemisphere and shortest in the southern hemisphere, holding a special significance in most parts of the world. Also, from the view of yoga, the summer solstice marks the transition to Dakshinayana. The resolution proposed by India was upvoted by 117 member states in the UN Assembly.
