International Yoga Day

EDM number 27 in 2017-19, proposed by Virendra Kumar Sharma on 21/06/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Leisure and Mental health.

That this House recognises the 3rd International Day of Yoga on 21 June 2017 adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015; notes that medical research has shown yoga has proven health benefits for a wide range of physical and mental problems; accepts that yoga is a means of maintaining good health outside of health services and offers a sustainable means for people and patients to care for themselves; further recognises that yoga empowers patients and restores them as agents of their own health and healing; and urges the consideration of yoga to be included as part of prevention and well-being initiatives for NHS staff and for yoga to be integrated within treatment for NHS patients.

This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
