International Yoga Day 2018: All you need to know

International Yoga Day 2018: All you need to know

"Today the entire world is celebrating Yoga day".

Stressing on India's role in promoting the practice, he added, "The gems of India's unique heritage such as yoga will be respected by the world at large only when we ourselves respect our culture and traditions, and take part in our legacy and heritage".

In Mumbai for the Yoga Day celebrations, Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu said that he want it to become a people's movement because it is not political or religious. Yoga guru Ramdev conducted the yoga session attended by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, ministers, officers and local people at RAC ground in the presence of two officials from the Guinness World Records.

The psychiatrist further explained that yoga can be used as a form of therapy for drug addicts because it enhances natural opioids which is a subtle means of easing pain and enhancing euphoria. While many powers in the world divide us, yoga unites us.

Extending his greetings on the occasion, the president said, "On International Yoga Day greetings to all those practising yoga across the globe".

People gathered at a sprawling forest research institute - snakes and monkeys were removed in advance - before dawn for the communal session involving the yoga-mad premier, an AFP reporter at the scene said.




The theme for International Yoga Day 2018 is Yoga for Peace.

Last year, the main function was held in Lucknow.

However in its present-day use, yoga is often no more than a form of exercise, Michael says.

"After only 4-6 months of doing yoga once a week, I was pleased to discover that numerous physical symptoms and pain had greatly subsided or disappeared", says Rola. "Yoga should be a general recommendation as part of the rehabilitation therapy for drug addicts who seek a high by consuming unsafe substances, a high that yoga can give them by enhancing euphoric hormones", she said. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being.

Addressing the gathering at Friday, he said, "In today's fast changing time, Yoga binds together a person's body, brain and soul, hence making one experience a feeling of peace".

Modi, an ardent Hindu nationalist, traveled to the hill town of Dehradun for the fourth International Day of Yoga, and shortly after sunrise was doing yoga exercises with about 50,000 people.
