NDRF CELEBRATED INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY
Dated: 21st June, 2022 Time: 1500 hrs
Since 2014, International Yoga Day is being celebrated every year to signify the importance of Yoga in our day to day life.
NDRF rescuers who directly experience or witness life threatening danger, exposure to gruesome death and seeing the victims who lost their home during or after disaster are at greatest risk for severe stress. In that condition, a few minutes of yoga during the day can be a great way to get rid of stress that accumulates daily in both the body and mind.
Today, in line with PM’s vision, National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), celebrated 8th International Day of Yoga in Delhi as well as at all NDRF Bns HQ and deployed locations. Moreover, on the direction of Ministry of Ayush, GoI, NDRF rescuers participated in the Yoga Day program organized at 75 iconic places to celebrate Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.
