High Commission of India is going to host the International Day of Yoga on Sunday, June 18, in Wellington.
Needless to emphasise that yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word yoga derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolising the union of body and consciousness.
Recognising its universal appeal, the United Nations had on December 11, 2014, proclaimed June 21, as International Yoga Day by resolution 69/131.
This year High Commission of India is celebrating International Yoga Day on Sunday, June 18, at Bharat Bhawan in Wellington.
