OVER 10,000 people from all walks of life participated last Sunday (19) in various yoga and meditation sessions near Tower Bridge in central London to mark the International Day of Yoga.
A day-long event at Potters Fields Park was held by the High Commission of India and the Government of India Tourist Office in London in collaboration with 14 UK yoga centres.
“It is by now acknowledged world- wide that yoga has the advantage of being able to provide a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, and is a perfect way towards harmony between man and nature,” said Navtej Sarna, high commissioner of India to the UK while inaugurating the event.
“It is important, however, that yoga is practised correctly and in a disciplined manner to tap into its full potential. Today, we have practitioners of the various forms of yoga in almost every country of the world. In this event today, here at Potters Park, I welcome our partners to demonstrate by their example yoga in its correct form,” Sarna said.
