In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has urged students, teachers to celebrate ‘International Yoga Day’ by posting videos of doing yoga on social media platforms.
Regarding the issue, the council has released a press release where it has asked everyone to practice yoga keeping in mind the social distancing norm. It has also asked people to pursue Yoga from their home and use social media platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram to show the skill without moving out of your home.
AICTE has decided to issue internal guidelines to motivate teachers to use online platforms to encourage Yoga and activities like lectures, workshops, and online training sessions.
Diksha Platform can be used as a dedicated Yoga channel.
The Ministry of Ayush has already launched the campaign ‘Yoga at Home, Yoga with Family’ for this year’s International Yoga Day a few days back and has asked everyone to participate in it by sending videos to them.
