Delhi: Five months after launch, over 12,000 people join AAP govt’s free yoga classes

Around 12,000 residents across the national capital have signed up for free daily yoga classes under the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government’s ‘Dilli Ki Yogshala’ programme launched in January this year, officials said, adding that the classes are being conducted in around 500 Delhi parks.

“At present, the Yogshala programme started by the Delhi Government is running in around 506 parks of Delhi. And around 12,000 people are practicing yoga and meditation every morning,” Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had tweeted recently. “The Arvind Kejriwal government has made yoga a mass movement in Delhi.”

The Yogshala programme was announced by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in December 2021 and the free classes started from January with 400 instructors. The main aim of this ‘Dilli ki Yogshala’ scheme was to make people lead a stress-free and healthy life.
