International Yoga Day 2022: Burqa-clad women in Pune take part in Yoga activities | Watch

The theme of this year's International Day of Yoga is "Yoga for Humanity". The theme portrays how yoga served humanity in alleviating suffering during the Covid pandemic

Ahead of International Day of Yoga on June 21, students of Pune's Azam Campus were seen practising Yoga on Monday. In an open ground of the campus, girl students clad in burqas worked on their asanas. It was a mix of school and college students from various institutes of Azam Campus. Boys too followed suit and worked on their Yoga skills.

On June 21, Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is on a 2-day visit to Karnataka will take part in Yoga day activities organised by the Department of Ayurveda, Unani, Sidda and Homoeopathy (AYUSH). The theme of this year's International Day of Yoga is "Yoga for Humanity". The theme portrays how yoga served humanity in alleviating suffering during the Covid pandemic.

Integrating the 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' with the the yoga day, the Prime Minister's Office said mass yoga demonstrations will be organised at 75 iconic locations across the country under the leadership of 75 Union ministers, with PM Modi attending the exercise at Mysore. The yoga demonstrations will also be held by various educational, social, political, cultural, religious, corporate and other civil society organisations and will be attended by crores of people across the country, it said.

Modi's yoga programme is also part of the novel programme 'Guardian Yoga Ring', which is a collaborative exercise between 79 countries and United Nations organisations along with Indian missions abroad to illustrate yoga's unifying power surpassing boundaries.

As the sun moves from the east to the west across the world, the mass yoga demonstrations in the participating countries, if seen from any one point on the earth, will seem to be happening one after the other, almost in tandem, thus underlining the concept of 'One sun, one earth'.
