The “Common Yoga Protocol” was published by the Government of India in 2014 to synthesize a basic yoga practice, including asana, pranayama, and observances for a well-rounded yoga practice grounded in health and wellness. It also contains a short discussion on the history of yoga, its fundamentals, and traditional schools of yoga.

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the 69th session of the United Nations General Assembly: “Yoga is an invaluable gift of ancient Indian tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature and a holistic approach to health and well-being. Yoga is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with ourselves, the world and Nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us to deal with climate change.”

Recognizing its universal appeal, on December 11, 2014, the United Nations proclaimed June 21st as the International Day of Yoga by resolution 69/131. The International Day of Yoga aims to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga. Its 2019 Theme: Climate Action.
