Why is June 21 designated as National Yoga Day?

The longest day of the year is June 21, often known as the summer solstice. As a result, it was determined that this day would be designated as International Yoga Day.

Yoga has proven effective in maintaining the body and mind in good health since the 5th century in India.

Yoga is a comprehensive method that focuses on all of the body's and mind's systems.
