    Ramdev Performs Yoga In Haridwar

    Haridwar: Yog Guru Ramdev performed yoga at an event in Uttarakhand's Haridwar on the occasion of International Day of Yoga on Friday. Patanjali MD Acharya Balkrishna also joined the Yoda Day celebrations and accompanied Ramdev in performing Yoga during the event. Many people including children also participated in the event at Haridwar.
    This year's theme, "Yoga for Self and Society" emphasizes yoga's vital role in fostering both individual well-being and societal harmony, an AYUSH Ministry release said.
    This year's celebrations will span across the nation, with a notable event termed "Yoga for Space", wherein all the centres and units of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will have programs on the practice of CYP or common Yoga Protocol. ISRO among other autonomous bodies will also participate in the CYP practice on June 21.
    Globally, Embassies and Indian Missions abroad will join the celebrations, reflecting yoga's widespread influence. Vaidya Rajesh Kotecha, Secretary of Ayush, recently in a gathering highlighted the journey of IDY, emphasizing its role in promoting health, social values, and a sense of community. The 'Whole of Government' approach to IDY celebrations includes coordinated efforts across various government departments and active participation from state governments and union territories. The National Ayush Mission team is also organizing events nationwide, demonstrating yoga's impact on holistic health. —ANI
