On the 10th International Yoga Day, Indian Army personnel practiced yoga in the icy northern frontier, while sailors on the aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya engaged in a morning yoga session. Children also joined Navy personnel in their yoga routines.

Additionally, Army troops performed yoga in Eastern Ladakh, and the Indo-Tibetan Border Police held a yoga session at Muguthang Sub Sector in Sikkim, over 15,000 feet above sea level.

The ITBP has been promoting Yoga at different high-altitude Himalayan ranges on India-China borders including Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand over the years by performing Yoga asanas.

From Ladakh in the north to Sikkim in the east, ITBP Jawans performed Yoga asanas on the occasion of 10th International Yoga Day.

The ITBP personnel performed Yoga at Karzok in Leh.

The Border Security Force personnel posted mesmerising visuals of BSF jawans performing Yoga at zero line at the Joint Check post at Attari, Amritsar under the supervision of Brig Pawan Bajaj (Retd), DIG BSF. Prime Minister Narendra Modi led celebrations of the 10th International Day of Yoga at Sher-e-Kashmir International Convention Centre (SKICC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Srinagar.

Defence Minister, Army Chief perform Yoga in Mathura

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Army Chief Gen Manoj Pande, accompanied by Indian Army personnel, participated in Yoga exercises in Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, to mark International Yoga Day 2024.

“I would like to extend my wishes on the occasion of International Yoga Day 2024. It is being celebrated throughout the world with great fervour. It is a matter of pride that the world has adopted this cultural heritage. The reason for its popularity is that it has become a symbol of a healthy lifestyle,” Rajnath Singh said.

“Despite the progress in technology and infrastructure people are living a stressful life. People have become more isolated. Earlier there used to be joint families but now there are nuclear families. With the growing importance of social media, it has put more pressure on the minds of youths. Anxiety and depression have become very common. Physical activities have reduced which has resulted in diabetes, blood pressure and obesity. Instead of depending on medicines to cure these diseases, it is better to practice Yoga,” the Defence Minister said.

He further said that working in this direction Prime Minister Narendra Modi kept the concept of Yoga in front of the world and everyone adopted it.

“While there are clashes taking place in the world we believe in collaboration and cooperation. This year the theme of Yoga is Yoga for Self and Society. Yoga word means to combine. Through Yoga, the importance of meditation also spread to the world. Yoga keeps the body physically as well as mentally fit. Yoga helps to combat unnecessary aggression. Indian Army also resembles the characteristics of a true Yogi,” Singh said.

This year’s event underscores Yoga’s profound impact on young minds and bodies. The celebration aims to unite thousands in the practice of Yoga, promoting health and wellness on a global scale.

This year’s theme, “Yoga for Self and Society,” emphasizes yoga’s vital role in fostering both individual well-being and societal harmony.
