June 21 was declared as the International Day of Yoga by the UN General Assembly in December 2014 and the world got together to celebrate it in all its glory. How many times have we witnessed people getting together to celebrate a single spiritual practice that empowers the mental and physical being of the human body? Never before!

In 2014, during his address to the UN General Assembly, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for the world to adopt June 21 as the International Day of Yoga as a step towards encouraging holistic health and well being. Not only did the first ever International Day of Yoga observe participation from a record-breaking 84 nationalities at once, the day also broke the record for the largest ever Yoga class having 35,985 participants altogether at New Delhi’s Rajpath.

Here are some pictures of people from all over the world celebrating the first ever International Day of Yoga.
