International Day of Yoga (June 21st)

Kincardine Celebrates ‘Yoga Day’ to Bring People Together for Good Health and Lasting Peace of Mind.

The International Day of Yoga has been celebrated annually on the 21st of June since its inception in 2015 when it was declared unanimously by the United Nations General Assembly. Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice attributed mostly to ancient India. Yoga asanas that have been practiced for centuries, integrated with wisdom from ancient India, are brought to you in a format that helps you to improve the quality of your daily life. It has been proven that Yoga practices help us respond to the challenges of life in a more creative and less reactive way. My wife and I have been practicing Yoga for many years and have been enriched with each practice. We feel proud to promote calmness and fitness through yoga.

On Thursday, Jun 21st, 2018 more than forty yoga enthusiasts came together and performed 90 minutes of yoga asanas just south of Station Beach. The class was guided by Kalpana Panditra and organized by the Sanatan Hindu Cultural & Spiritual Centre in Kincardine, ON. Yoga is India’s gift to the world and a passport for complete wellness. Today, the world has embraced this ancient practice and ‘International Yoga Day’ has become one of the biggest mass movements in over 190 countries. Join us in this quest for health and wellness.

Yoga is an ancient practice which can be incorporated into our modern lives. It can make a big difference in a person’s life. Yoga is not just an exercise to maintain physical health, but is a tool to keep one’s mind under control. This brings harmony and peace to the individual, the society and the world.

Thank you to all who participated and who have pledged to make yoga an integral part of their life. Ensure your own health and wellness while enjoying and aspiring for peace.
