Yoga is an ancient physical and mental practice that originated in India. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness.
Today it is practiced in various forms in Hong Kong, around the world and continues to grow in popularity.
Recognizing its universal appeal, on 11 December 2014, the United Nations proclaimed 21 June as the International Day of Yoga.
The International Day of Yoga aims to raise awareness in Hong Kong and worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga.
With this effort, the Andiappan Yoga Community aim to raise money to support its various projects in providing free yoga classes to different groups within Hong Kong – the elderly, breast cancer survivors, overseas domestic workers, the homeless, university students, and low-income families/housewives, among others.
The fifth annual International Day of Yoga will be celebrated at Anahata Yoga Hong Kong on Sunday, 23 June 2019, with a "Yoga Session with Yoga Masters."
Not only will this event increase the understanding of “yoga for all”, but the event also hopes to honor and celebrate the volunteer leaders and all the volunteers who have tirelessly donated their time and effort in actively teaching within our yoga community.
Let us join hands and share your love of yoga with the ones you love.
