International Day of Yoga

The United Nations has declared 21 June each year to be observed as the International Day of Yoga (IDY). It is fitting that the resolution to declare 21 June as the International Day of Yoga received co-sponsorship of record number of 177 countries, including South Africa. This is a reflection of the tremendous potential of yoga in the overall well-being of humankind.

To observe the first International Day of Yoga, the High Commission of India in Pretoria in collaboration / association with Shree Pretoria Hindu Seva Samaj, is organising an event at the Seva Samaj Hall, 264, 13th Avenue, Laudium, 0037. The programme will include various activities like lecture-demonstration, talk on Yoga by experts, essay writing, meditation sessions, performance of some basic yoga asanas by all attendees, benefits of Ayurveda, etc.

Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice. It is an invaluable gift which embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between human-being and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not just about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. The objective of celebrating the International Day of Yoga is to create awareness about yoga and how it benefits everyone in better understanding the significance of traditional and authentic yoga techniques.

You, your family and your colleagues are invited to participate in the event which begins at 0745.
