The subject of the ninth International Day of Yoga, which will be held on June 21 in India and around the world, is “Yoga for Humanity.”
According to the Ayush ministry, the theme was chosen after much thought and consultation, and it “appropriately shows how yoga benefited humanity in reducing miseries during the peak of the pandemic.”

It will also bring people together through compassion and kindness in the growing post-Covid geopolitical landscape, foster a sense of oneness, and build resilience among people all over the world, according to the statement.
On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi revealed the subject in his Maan Ki Baat programme.
Sarbananda Sonowal, the Union Minister for Ayush, said, “Yoga, as we all know, is a practise that gives joy, health, and tranquilly from inside while also deepening a sense of constant connection between one’s inner consciousness and the outside world. IDY 2022 will be effective in properly promoting this theme.”
Last year’s Yoga Day had the theme of ‘yoga for wellness.’
This year’s International Day of Yoga main event will take place in Mysuru, Karnataka.
Special programmes for specially abled individuals, transgender persons, women, and children have been planned this year around the subject of ‘yoga for mankind.’ Human values, which are a key component of yoga instruction in schools, are also highlighted.
“This year, our villages/gram panchayats will see a lot of involvement because common service centres are pushing the practise and training of a common yoga protocol, and millions of villagers are expected to engage in the IDY 2022,” Sonowal added.
