ICCR has been assigned the responsibility of facilitating the celebration of the International Day of Yoga by Indian Missions/Posts abroad since 2015. The scope of the celebration of IDY has been extended substantially since then. IDY celebrations, which were initially restricted to capital cities only, have spread all across foreign countries. Indian Missions and Posts get voluntary participation/support by India’s leading and internationally renowned Yoga organizations/institutions like Gayatri Parivar, Art of Living, Mokshyatan, Gayatri Parivar, Brahmakumaris, Patanjali, Iyengar Yoga, Sivananda Yoga etc. in addition to that of the local Government, Yoga institutions and Indian community associations in the IDY celebrations in different cities. Local dignitaries and eminent personalities participate in the IDY events organized by the Missions/Posts. IDY celebrations are organized by most of the Indian Missions/Posts with partial financial assistance from ICCR. ICCR organizes special event for foreign diplomats in Delhi at the Pravasi Bhartiya Kendra.
