NDO – The 8th International Day of Yoga 2022 is scheduled to kicked off on May 29 with an event held at Tam Chuc pagoda in the northern province of Ha Nam, according to the Indian Embassy in Vietnam.

Yoga events will also take place in many places throughout the nation, including Hanoi, Vinh Phuc, and Quang Ninh in the north; Thanh Hoa, Thua Thien-Hue, and Da Nang in the central region; Dak Nong and Dak Lak in the Central Highlands; Ho Chi Minh City in the South; and Can Tho, Tien Giang, Soc Trang in the Mekong Delta, among many other localities.

According to Indian Ambassador Pranay Verma, Vietnam has always been an important partner of India in promoting and celebrating the International Day of Yoga since it was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2014.

The widespread love for Yoga in Vietnam has brought about a strong cultural connection and people-to-people exchange between the two countries, he added, noting that in 2022, Vietnam was selected by the Government of India as one of the countries included in the Global Yoga Ring programme.

In the capital city, the International Day of Yoga will be marked on June 18 at Ly Thai To statue square in Hoan Kiem district.
