Message From Our CM

Shri Arvind Kejriwal

We feel proud that Indian meditation and yoga traditions have taught people around the world to be physically and mentally healthy for hundreds of years. But in our hectic life, we are forgetting this tradition of meditation and yoga. Therefore, in order to give a healthy lifestyle to the people of Delhi, the government is now making yoga a mass movement by starting “Dilli ki Yogshala” and taking it to every citizen of Delhi. I urge you to make yoga a part of your daily life.

Arvind Kejriwal
Chief Minister of Delhi

Now you can learn yoga in your localities through this program of Delhi Government. You create a group of 25 or more people who want to learn yoga. Delhi government will provide you a professional yoga trainer to teach you yoga free of cost. These professional yoga trainers will teach you how to live a healthy lifestyle along with meditation and yoga. You can ask for a yoga trainer for your group at any time of the day as per your convenience from the government.

Let's make yoga a part of our life and bring yoga to every household. I am sure that more and more citizens of Delhi will participate in this campaign to make Yoga a mass movement and make their Delhi a healthy and happy Delhi.

About Dilli Ki Yogshala

Dilli Ki Yogshala is an initiative of the Government of the NCT of Delhi to make yoga reach door to door and to transform it into a mass movement by providing a certified yoga instructor to the public, free of cost. The aim is to highlight the importance of meditation and yoga in improving the physical and mental health of citizens. As an ancient practice, yoga has proven to be an effective means of improving the quality of one’s life. Through daily practice, one can inculcate mindfulness and be in greater harmony with their environment.

The Centre for Meditation and Yoga Sciences (CMYS) was established by the Delhi Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research University. CMYS launched diploma and certificate courses and enrolled 650+ students for the same. These students were then trained and certified to be yoga instructors, and will now be accessible to the people of Delhi.

An integral component of this initiative is to inculcate an enhanced sense of community within citizens. Citizens will have the opportunity to collectively experience mindfulness by coming together and performing meditation and yoga. Through this initiative, we aspire to make zones of meditation and positive thinking, out of venues that are chosen by you, for you.

To achieve this, certified instructors will be made available to all citizens. Each group needs to have a minimum of 25 members from a neighbourhood. The instructors will coordinate with a member of each group who shall be called “group coordinator”, to organise the classes. The group coordinator shall coordinate with the instructor and fix the time and venue (as deemed suitable by all participants) for the yoga classes.

The government is keen on highlighting the benefits of meditation and yoga for one’s physical and mental well-being. A shared sense of individual mindfulness will not only help our communities prosper, but also help them lead more meaningful lives. In our fast paced daily lives, we forgot that meditation and yoga have been part of our society and community since time immemorial. Thus, the Delhi Government is proud to bring meditation and yoga back to the forefront of our community and society – where it rightfully belongs.

This initiative has been envisioned with the aim of creating an environment of both individual and collective mindfulness in the everyday lives of our citizens. Through this initiative, we also aim to strengthen the social fabric of our society by inculcating an enhanced sense of community within the minds of the people. To achieve this, we have curated this programme such that it is accessible to people across all backgrounds, free of cost.

With a healthy body and a healthy mind, let us build a better life!

Our mission is to create a mass movement highlighting the benefits of yoga as a means of achieving mindfulness and physical health. With a focus on door-to-door outreach, the Government of Delhi aims to work in close association with community members in providing certified yoga instructors free of cost. Let us work together and bring yoga to all!
