MUSCAT – The International Day of Yoga (IDY) is celebrated all over the world every year on 21 June. On 11 December 2014, the United Nations General Assembly had approved Resolution 69/131, declaring 21 June as the “International Day of Yoga”. The Resolution was co-sponsored by a record number of 177 countries. The international community has since been celebrating IDY with a view to make people aware of the health and spiritual benefits of yoga.

International Day of Yoga has been celebrated in Oman too with great enthusiasm in previous years. Embassy of India, Muscat, has been celebrating the annual International Day of Yoga in Oman with support and participation of the Government of Oman, numerous Yoga organizations as well as Yoga teachers & practitioners.
