Everyone should be wondering why International Yoga Day is only celebrated on June 21st? What is so special that is designated as World Yoga Day?

We all know that 21st June is the longest day of the summer solstice in Nothern Hemisphere, or in other words, this is the time of the Year when the sun moves from North to south. It is also one of the two important days when sun rays directly fall on either of the two tropical latitude lines.

It is believed that this change brings a significant impact on people. According to the yogis and gurus, during this transition period, it is really good to practice yoga. Another significant reason for choosing this day is that on this day Adiyogi, the first known yogi, embarked upon a journey towards the south with seven royal sages.

These sages later became Adiyogi's first disciples and also helped in propagating the importance of yoga in other parts of the world. Then this day was marked and decided that 21 st June will be officially celebrated as International Yoga Day.
