Yoga for Humanity is the theme of the 8th International Day of Yoga, to be observed in Kincardine and globally, on June 21.

This practice brings people together to spread the awareness of physical and mental health, foster a sense of unity, and build resilience. 

Yoga (or yog), which literally means union in the Sanskrit language, is an ancient Indian tradition of Sanatan culture/dharm comprising a lifestyle that has physical, mental, and spiritual benefits. It is an essential science to bring the understanding and experience of the self (turning inward and being one with the self).  

On this day, thousands of yoga events will be hosted worldwide. Everyone is invited to participate in a free yoga marathon with Kalpanaji, Tuesday, June 21, at 6 p.m., at Station Beach, Kincardine.

The United Nations General Assembly adopted an India-led resolution declaring June 21 as the “International Day of Yoga.” It provides a holistic approach to health and well-being. 

I have been practicing yoga for the past 10 years and can testify that it brings joy, health, and peace within. Whether you are a seasoned practitioner or just beginning your yoga journey, join us on June 21 and show your solidarity to exercise mind, body, and spirit through yoga.

Also mark your calendar for Saturday, Aug. 13, when Indo-Canadians are showcasing Sanatan Hindu culture at Victoria Park, Kincardine. Similar to the Multicultural celebration, this open house is free to all and displays diversity within Hindu culture, music, dances, food, traditions, dharm, ayurved, yoga, and meditation.

It is an opportunity for all to interact and become aware of the diversity of Hindu culture and dharm, as well as explore roots, beliefs, and values by interacting with knowledgeable people. For more information visit
