The second edition of National Health Editors’ Conference on Yoga was inaugurated by an Indian minister Shripad Yesso Naik at National Media Centre in New Delhi today.
The conference was organized by Ministry of AYUSH in association with the Press Information Bureau (PIB) as part of celebrations of the 3rd International Day of Yoga on 21st June, 2017. The theme of this year’s conference was “Yoga for Health and Harmony”.
Addressing the participants, Shripad Naik said that the International Day of Yoga is perhaps the only occasion where people across the globe come together in such a large number and take active participation.
The interest and zeal of participation in yoga is increasing considerably year by year due to which today yoga has become a household name in the real sense, the minister added. He said that the credit of increasing popularity of yoga also goes to media: print, electronic, and social media.
The minister stated that yoga has earned the global recognization in promoting positive health among people. Since treatments in the modern hospitals are becoming expensive affairs for the people, yoga is gradually making new inroads into the health care system, he elaborated.
The minister further stated that yoga not only makes people healthy but also helps to reduce the burden on the health care delivery system of the country.
Around 150 health editors and media persons from national, regional, and international media organizations attended the conference, which was live streamed on PIB website, YouTube channel of PIB, PIB’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
