Message of Hon’ble Governor Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan on the occasion of the “International Yoga Day” on 21.06.2021



I extend heartiest wishes to all on the occasion of the International Day of Yoga-2021 celebrated all over the world on June 21.

Yoga is an integral part of our rich ancient Indian heritage. Yoga has immense potential in enhancing the physical, psychological, and emotional wellbeing of the practitioners. Yoga helps in achieving the balance of mind, body, and the soul.

Regular practice of Yoga helps in perfect union of body and mind and contributes positively to the physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing of the practitioners.

The COVID-19 pandemic situation has once again highlighted the need for developing better immunity to fight the infections so as to keep ourselves healthy.

This immunity can be easily achieved by the regular practice of Yoga and helps in fight against the infections.

The theme for the International Day of Yoga-2021 is “Yoga for Wellbeing” aptly highlights the role of Yoga in ensuring the wellbeing of the people.

I appeal to all to celebrate the International Yoga Day by duly following the COVID-appropriate behaviour and continue to practice yoga daily to keep themselves as active and agile.

I thank the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji for his efforts in making this national tradition as an international event by his initiative to get the United Nations General Assembly’s unanimous resolution to declare June 21st as the International Day of Yoga.

I once again extend the best wishes on this happy occasion of the International Day of Yoga.
