India gears up to celebrate 4th International Yoga Day

"If we don't take pride in our own legacy and heritage no one else will".

Times of Oman's TFM is the official media partner for the event that will be held at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre, Muscat at 7.15 pm today. Every year, around 200,000 yoga teachers are trained in China, which shows how popular yoga is and the demand for teachers, because many people realise how yoga can help them, she said.

Here's all you need to know about what International Yoga Day is, when it is, what the theme for 2018 will be, how to watch its events, how to celebrate it and some notable events taking place in India and throughout the world. Instead of furthering animosity, yoga assimilates. After much deliberations, the United Nations agreed to officially designate the day.

Modi stated: 'Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition.

For the International Yoga Day (IDY) 2018, the AYUSH Ministry is all set to organise a tour for the overseas Yoga professionals to the "Yoga's birthplace" that is the southern state of Kerala. Instead, his yoga mat was kept along with students which they termed as a "pleasant surprise". "We refuse the imposition to practise yoga and we will keep opposing its celebration in the state", said Vanlalruata, president of anti-corruption organisation-turned-political party, People's Representation for Identity and Status of Mizoram.

There has been a noticeable rise in the number of Arab participants in Yoga, said Diji Shujahi, the host of the event in Abu Dhabi for four years in a row.

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

"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.

"In a world where non-communicable diseases, stress and lifestyle-related ailments are rising, yoga can play a central role in mitigating these diseases to create a healthy mind and body".

"As the Sun is for all, the Moon is for all, rivers are for all, in the same way yoga is for all", he said.

Hey bro, fitness fads may come and go, but Yoga, it has stayed over 5000 years since it was conceived.

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".

The Prime Minister's decision to celebrate International Yoga Day in Dehradun was warmly welcomed by the Chief Minister Trivendra Rawat, who said he hoped it would cement the state's status as a premier destination for yogis worldwide.
