The United Nations has approved the proposal of Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi to launch a special day for yoga practitioners across the world. Last December the 193-member UN General Assembly approved by consensus a resolution establishing June 21st as 'International Day of Yoga' – a proud moment for Indians.
To mobilize this initiative in UAE, the Consulate General of India, Dubai has taken a lead in hosting the International Yoga Day celebration on Sunday 21st June 2015, for which a crowd of more than 15,000 participants are expected. These will also include participants from Indian schools, local universities, members of the diplomatic community, Dubai Government Authorities, as well as the large Indian community living in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.
For a lifestyle medium keeping fit, yoga has a long-standing fan following including celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Lady Gaga, and Richard Gere amongst many others and this celebration at an international level will further encourage more people of other communities to support and experience a life-changing activity.
