Introduction :

We all know that the thrust of the !DY observation on 21st June is on harmonious mass yoga demonstrations in which millions of people participate around the globe: at thousands of venues. When participation of people is on such a massive scale, there has to be some serious planning behind it, if the demonstration is to be in harmony. Some of the most accomplished yoga gurus of India came together to address this issue. They developed the Common Yoga Protocol (CYP) for this purpose, which is essentially a specified sequence of Yoga Asanas of 45 minutes duration.The Asanas and practices forming part of the CYP are selected in such a way as to yield the maximum health & wellbeing rewards to a diverse group of people from different profiles of health, age etc.
Experts are of the view that beginners can learn CYP in about 15 sessions of one-hour duration each.
