The Embassy of India in Cairo will celebrate the 10th edition of the International Day of Yoga 2024 in Cairo at Al-Horreya Public Park, Zamalek on 21st June 2024 from 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM. 

This year’s theme, “Yoga for Self and Society,” invites us to explore the transformative power of Yoga on both personal and community level. The events are being organized in association with the Egyptian Ministry of Youth and Sports and the Governorate of Cairo.

 Recognizing the universal appeal of Yoga, the United Nations proclaimed 21 June as the International Day of Yoga (IDY) on 11 December 2014. 

The draft resolution establishing the International Day of Yoga was proposed by India and endorsed by a record 175 member states including the Arab Republic of Egypt. The resolution by UN itself is a recognition of the significance and benefits of Yoga. 

The objective behind the decision was to increase the awareness regarding the valuable benefits of Yoga and to promote adoption of a healthy and peaceful lifestyle based on Yoga.

The Embassy invites all the Yoga enthusiasts to join us in celebrating the 10th edition of the International Day of Yoga 2024 in Cairo. For further details, please contact the Maulana Azad Centre for Indian Culture (MACIC) : Tel: 27371992 –5
