International Yoga Day 2022
Yoga is an ancient Indian practice that helps boost one’s mental health and social well-being. The word ‘yoga’ is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘Yuj’ which symbolizes the union of body and consciousness. Yoga is more than just asanas. It is a means of unlocking our infinite possibilities and power. The extraordinary benefits of Yoga have made it a popular practice all over the world.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, when several restrictions on the movement of people were imposed, many found physical and mental relaxation through yoga. In fact, yoga is instrumental in developing strength and resilience in one’s life. Yoga helps in building up psycho-physiological health and managing daily stress. Every year, people across the globe celebrate International Yoga Day with great fervor on June 21.
The theme for International Yoga Day 2022 is ‘Yoga for Humanity’. The ministry has designed special programmes for the specially-abled and transgender population, women and children. The 8th edition of International Yoga Day will also witness an innovative programme ‘Guardian Ring’ that will see the participation of enthusiasts, along with the sun’s movement, i.e. beginning from the east and marching towards the west.
At LISAA School of Design Bangalore, International Yoga Day 2022 was celebrated on campus by our very own faculty member Mrs. Amrita Mukin, who has multifaceted skills, one being a skilled yoga instructor. She was able to share her knowledge of different asanas, surya namaskar and breathing techniques. Through this small workshop we were able to show our students and teachers the importance of mind, body and spirit well being.
