IDY 2022 – Celebrations in Ethiopia (24 May 2022)

International Day of Yoga (IDY) 2022 celebrations in Ethiopia have started. Yesterday (24 May), yoga sessions were held at 6 locations in Gelan – Cadilla Pharmaceuticals, Eco Packaging, Metcan, KAM Polymers, Vayo Automobiles and Warka Trading PLC.

Yoga sessions will continue today in Bishoftu and Kaliti.

On 11 Dec 2014, the United Nations, including Ethiopia and India, unanimously adopted a resolution to observe International Day of Yoga (IDY) on 21st June every year. The first IDY was celebrated in Ethiopia and all over the world on 21 June 2015. In Ethiopia, IDY has been celebrated by Embassy of India every year with the enthusiastic support of Indian companies and businesses in Ethiopia.

Last year (2021), 100 yoga events were organized in all regions of Ethiopia. Besides India, Ethiopia led the world in commemorating the International Day of Yoga in terms of the highest number of yoga events.

We would like to thank our generous partners – Mahavir Industries PLC, Aarti Steel, Jay Jay Textiles and Parle G.
