Prime Minister Narendra Modi on June 21 launched the mYoga app on the occasion of the seventh International Day of Yoga.
The app is a work of collaboration between the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Ministry of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (Ministry of AYUSH).
Launching the ‘M Yoga App’, PM Modi said, “When India proposed International Day of Yoga in the United Nations, it was the spirit behind it to make this yoga science accessible to the whole world. In collaboration with WHO, India has taken another important step. Now there will be M-Yoga app, which will have yoga training videos in different languages for people across the world. This will help us in our ‘One World, One Health’ motto.”
“Today, when the whole world is combating the coronavirus disease pandemic, yoga remains a ray of hope,” he added.
According to WHO website, the mYoga app was developed through “review of scientific literature and extensive international expert consultation processes.”
This year, the theme is ‘Yoga For Wellness’. Elaborating on it, PM Modi wrote on Twitter: “The theme this year is ‘Yoga For Wellness’, which focuses on practising Yoga for physical and mental wellbeing.”
Available on the Google play store, the app will be accessible around the world. mYoga app is currently available in English, Hindi and French.
It will be available in other UN languages in the upcoming months.
