Heartfulness Institute will mark the International Day of Yoga on 21 June with public events in various locations globally. The events will be held at the Institute's meditation and retreat centers and also at other community venues in partnership with civil society and yoga organizations and Indian diplomatic missions.

Every year on June 21 the United Nations invites the global community to celebrate the life-enhancing practices of Yoga. In establishing the International Day of Yoga, the United Nations underscored the need for building better lifestyles, recognizing that Yoga provides a holistic approach to health and well-being. The UN also called for the wider dissemination of information about the benefits of practicing Yoga.

On the International Day of Yoga, the Heartfulness community, led by its youth, will bring together hundreds of thousands of people with the theme 'Connect. Integrate. Become One' in Chennai, Singapore, Hyderabad, Paris, New York, London, Toronto, Sydney and in other major metropolitan centers, as well as in many smaller cities, towns and rural areas globally.

They include relaxation, heart-based meditation, cleaning and inner connection.
