As the world marked the 7th International Day of Yoga on June 21 this year, Yoganandaji’s pivotal role in the spread of yoga worldwide was commemorated by YSS with special online programmes in English and Hindi. These online offerings from YSS were specially designed for beginners on the path of yoga meditation. Further, during these challenging times, YSS promoted the well-being of the body, mind, and soul of all who are in need through the knowledge of Yoga, imparted during these sessions.
