8th International Day of Yoga  (21 June 2022, Park HaTachana, Tel Aviv-Yafo

 

भारत का राजदूतावास

  1. Indian Cultural Center
  2. Embassy of India

 

June 21, the longest day of the year, was adopted as the International Day of Yoga (IDY) through a UN Resolution that was proposed by India and co-sponsored by 177 nations in 2014.  Since then, the International Day of Yoga (IDY) is being celebrated all over the world with great enthusiasm and positive spirit. The Indian diplomatic missions all over the world take the lead in organizing events to mark the IDY.

 

The Embassy of India in Israel has been celebrating IDY every year since 2015 with a grand-public yoga event in the city of Tel Aviv along with partnered events across various cities in Israel. The theme for this year’s International Day of Yoga is “Yoga for Humanity”. The newly established Indian Cultural Center under the aegis of Embassy of India will be celebrating the 8th International Day of Yoga by organizing a public Yoga event coupled with spiritual music performances by renowned artists on 21 June (Tuesday) at the iconic Park HaTachana, Tel Aviv. The event is being organized in association with Municipality of Tel Aviv-Yafo and the Israel Yoga Teachers Association.

 

The year 2022 marks two historic milestones of the 75th Anniversary of India’s independence and the 30th anniversary of establishment of full diplomatic relations between India and Israel. To commemorate the two occasions, the Yoga day event in Tel Aviv this year has been selected for the global Guardian Ring initiative, a relay Yoga streaming event, which will capture and weave together live digital feed of yoga events being organized by select Indian Missions across the world.

 

The event is free of cost, open to all, and suits all yoga level practitioners. Interested participants can also reserve their spots by registering at https://bit.ly/3QmbLz4
