EDM 97: Un International Day of Yoga, 21 June 2015

I signed the 'Un International Day of Yoga, 21 June 2015' EDM.

That this House supports the first International Day of Yoga, on 21 June 2015, adopted by the UN General Assembly; recognises that this event was formalised after diplomatic efforts by the Indian government, and following Prime Minister Modi's promotion of yoga to the General Assembly; notes that yoga has a deep spiritual meaning to millions of people, particularly in India, as well as mental and physical benefits; further notes that Secretary General Ban Ki Moon is taking yoga lessons in preparation for the event; and urges the Government to make similar efforts to promote the worldwide celebration.
