Over 30 local organisations, including state-initiatives Active SG and People's Association as well as yoga organisations, schools, universities, elder care centres, hospitals and mental health institutions will participate in the 10-day programme.

June 21 was declared as International Yoga Day when the United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution, co-sponsored by 177 countries, in 2014.

Since then, it is observed each year in cities around the world.
