London: Over 700 attend Indian High Commission’s Yoga event in Trafalgar Square

Ahead of International Yoga Day, the High Commission of India in the United Kingdom organised a yoga event at Trafalgar Square which witnessed the significant participation of more than 700 enthusiastic people.

Since 2015, the International Day of Yoga is celebrated across the world annually on June 21, following its adoption by the United Nations in 2014.

In response to a question, about what’s different this year, the Indian envoy Doraiswami highlighted that this year, there were more participants, additional yoga schools involved, and a greater diversity of communities present.

However, the main focus remains on continuing yoga’s role in healing and personal growth, rather than aiming for differences in participation.

“Different in the sense that we had even more people up here, we’ve had more yoga schools join us and we’ve had in a sense a bigger diversity of communities here,” Doraiswami said on Saturday.

“But the idea wasn’t to be different, the idea was to be, to take through the continuity of yoga as a means of healing and as a means of growing,” he added.
