This the chance to recognise the ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The day has been celebrated since 2014, when the United Nationals officially deemed it as Yoga Day.

For the the first time ever, the Cupertino outfit is running an activity challenge to mark the occasion. To earn the badge users will need to complete a yoga workout of 15 minutes or more on June 21st. They can do this via any app that records yoga workouts to the Health app.

The yet-to-be announced challenge will be available globally. Users should start to see it appearing on their Watches soon. Those who successfully complete the task will be rewarded with a trio of animated stickers (pictured above) that can be used in Messages and FaceTime. They’ll also see a virtual trophy in the Achievements tab of the iPhone Activity app.

Apple Watch has had native support for yoga workouts since the introduction of watchOS 5 last year. The functionality allows users to track various types of yoga sessions, from restorative to power vinyasa flow.

The fourth challenge this year comes about two months after the Apple Earth Day activity challenge. That one required users to record a workout for 30 minutes or more on April 22nd.
