Yoga Enthusiasts in UAE Gear Up to Celebrate International Yoga Day

As International Yoga Day celebrations kick off around the world, UAE has also announced its plans for various activities as part of the event.  Thousands of yoga enthusiasts gear up to roll out their mats to celebrate the 5th World Yoga Day this weekend in different locations across the emirate. While Dubai encourages a healthy lifestyle and Yoga is another good way of attaining it, the global event will undeniably promote the mind, body and spiritual benefits of practicing yoga in UAE.


International Yoga Day

June 21, the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere is regarded as the International Day for Yoga. It is the day of the Summer Solstice that’s considered important in Indian mythology as it marks an event that could be considered the start of Yogic science. Hence, June 21 was declared an official global day by the UN General Assembly in 2015. Since then, the Yoga Day is celebrated worldwide.
