3 Celebrations of 7th International Day of Yoga at IIT Bombay

The International Day of Yoga is celebrated worldwide on June 21 every year to raise awareness about the importance and impact of yoga on the health of people. The term 'yoga' is derived from Sanskrit word “Yuja” which means to unite, representing the unification of body and consciousness. At IIT Bombay too, this day has always been celebrated with grandeur and glory. Since everything is being organised online in view of the pandemic, the Yogastha Club has too shifted the festivities online.
