The United Nations issued a special set of 10 stamps commemorating the International Yoga Day on June 21 this year.

Recognizing the universal appeal of yoga, the United Nations marked the 2017 edition of the International Day of Yoga, which aims to integrate the benefits of healthy lives and wellbeing – essential aspects of day to day lives. The theme for this year's celebration, organized by the Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations, is 'Yoga for Health.'

The Day, which aims to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga, was also immortalized with the unveiling of a UN Postal Administration's special Yoga Day commemorative stamp.

The 10 stamps of USD 1.15 denomination each depict a different yoga pose next to a large ‘Om’ in Devanagri script. The stamps are on a single sheet with a picture of the UN Secretariat building that has International Day of Yoga projected on it.
