Yoga retreats Thailand



In an address by the Prime Minister of India in September 2014, Mr. Narendra Modi was appealing to the 193-member UN General Assembly to celebrate a day of Yoga internationally. His view was that the current and urgent climate situation of the world can be better addressed when people allow Yoga to help them attain new level of consciousness:

“Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.”

The UN General Assembly adopted resolution 69/131 on 11 December 2014 commemorating 21 June as the International Day Yoga Day.

“By proclaiming 21 June as the International Yoga Day, the General Assembly has recognized the holistic benefits of this timeless practice and its inherent compatibility with the principles and values of the United Nations.” –Ban Ki-Moon, United Nations Secretary-General

The aim of the International Yoga Day is to raise the awareness of Yoga benefits worldwide. On June 21st, there are large Yoga events worldwide that are open and free to everybody. This great annual celebration has got the United Nations, several organizations, Yoga schools, communities, magazines, sponsors, as well as governments worldwide committed to providing their resources and efforts to make sure Yoga is spread. The first celebration was held in 2015, marking a significant landmark in Yoga history. Emerging at the event at Rajpath (New Delhi) were two Guinness World Records: The Largest Yoga Class ever (having 35, 985 participants), with a total of 84 participating nations. A celebration of Union had never been this exciting! It was done at a very large scale and on the same day.

June 21st also has something special to celebrate. It’s the Summer solstice, marking the longest day of the year in Northern countries globally. From the perspective of Yoga, the Summer solstice represents the transition to dakshinayana, which in Sanskrit term is the six-month period between the Summer solstice and Winter solstice. This day is considered to be a special time of the year when sadhanas (spiritual practices) obtain extra support from Mother Earth.

A global celebration of Yoga is not a new practice. There has been a World Yoga Day movement which was started by Jagat Guru Dileepji Maharaj (guru, and Founder-President-CEO, Chairman of the Global Council at World Yoga Community Inc.) in 1999 in New York. On World Yoga Day, an event that took place this year on 21st of February, Yoga students and teachers around the globe give their space and time to a two-hour Yoga class that is devoted to human rights – where participants can freely donate to support the given course. The time for the class is 11:00 – 13:00 local time in each time zone, resulting in a 24-hour marathon of Yoga practice globally.
