Our government is committed to promoting yoga in the state via various mediums which can reach thousands of people online and offline. Uttarakhand has immense potential for religious tourism, yoga, meditation centres, Panchakarma and Naturopathy, which are subjects our government is working on. We are also developing other spots in Uttarakhand for yoga and wellness.”
