What is the History of Yoga Day?
Yoga Day is a day to celebrate the ancient Indian practice of yoga.
The history of Yoga Day is uncertain, but it is believed to have originated in India sometime in the early 20th century. At that time, many people in India were fighting for independence from British rule. Many people in India believed that yoga could help them to maintain their focus and stay strong during difficult times.
So, on April 28th, 1948, a group of people in India decided to celebrate yoga on this special day. They called themselves the “Mahatma Yoga Nidhi Committee”. The committee chose this date because it was the anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Gandhi, an important figure in Indian independence movement.
Since 1948, many people around the world have celebrated Yoga Day. Today, it is celebrated mainly in India, but there are also celebrations planned in other countries with a significant Indian population, such as Canada and the United States.
