No Yoga Day in Mizoram on International Yoga Day

Since coming to power in 2014, India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken yoga as an emblem of India's flourishing in the world, pushing for the United Nations resolution that has since 2015 consecrated June 21 as International Yoga Day. Addressing the large gathering in the backdrop of the iconic British-era building of FRI, Modi said yoga has shown the world the way from "illness to wellness" and enriching lives across the globe. "We refuse the imposition to practise yoga and we will keep opposing its celebration in the state", said Vanlalruata, president of anti-corruption organisation-turned-political party, People's Representation for Identity and Status of Mizoram.

He further appealed to those who are associated with yoga to "do it regularly and those who have not yet adopted yoga to give it a try".

Ace shuttler Saina Nehwal and wrestler Sakshi Malik were among other members of Indian sports fraternity who also posted yoga day greetings on Twitter. "Yoga is not just about exercise; it is a way to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature". The event made it to the Guinness World Records with 35,985 participants of 84 nationalities performing asanas at one venue.

Participants take part in a mass yoga event on the Champs de Mars in front of the Eiffel tower in Paris, June 17, 2018 in celebration of the upcoming International Yoga Day to be held on June 21. A year ago he participated at an event at the Ramabai Ambedkar Sabha Sthal in Lucknow.

Two years ago, the influential Mizoram Kohhran Hruaitute Committee, which is a conglomerate of 15 major churches, had boycotted the celebration saying yoga is "dipped in Hinduism".

"Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increases body awareness; relieves chronic stress patterns; relaxes the mind; centres attention; and sharpens concentration".

"As the Sun is for all, the Moon is for all, rivers are for all, in the same way yoga is for all", he said.

"We have developed a program that is a combination of simple yoga asanas and mudras with emphasis on breathing, supported by Arabic rhythmic movements - something for all age groups and fitness levels to experience and enjoy".

"The world has embraced yoga and glimpses of this can be seen in the manner in which International Day of Yoga has been marked every year", Prime Minister Narendra Modi said.

Today, people all over the world have come to look upon yoga as something which belongs to them, Mr. Modi said.
