About this Project:

“Yoga is a unity of the mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is about discovering the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and nature. By creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change. Let us celebrate International Yoga Day, June 21st, which is of great significance, as it is the fourth year as well as Summer Solstice. So far, more than 170 countries worldwide have shown their support for this day.”

It will increase the understanding of “yoga for all” classes are offered. This event will also honor the volunteer leaders and volunteers who have been actively teaching in our yoga community.

Let us share yoga with our loved ones.

A sequence of Detoxifying yoga poses combined with invigorating and energizing breathing techniques ensures optimum blood supply to various parts of the body. This helps flush out toxins, resulting in the long-term benefits of delayed ageing and a stronger immune system.


12 : 30 – 13 : 30  Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskaram) taught by Dr. Yogananth Andiappan and his family, Master Mahesh

Open to all levels
Sun- Salutation (Surya Namaskaram) is one of the most widely practiced sequences in yoga. It is a set of 12 – 16 poses which can be performed in a repetitive sequence. The practice of this dynamic sequence helps the mind focus on one thing alone – the movement of the body synchronized with the breath. This will help to quiet the mind as well. By practicing Sun Salutation, we learn to expand our awareness of the body and the energies whirling in it. One can enjoy detox and slimming benefits with a regular practice of this sequence.

This event is open to all for free
Learn easy-to-do meditation techniques to de-stress and relax your mind, body, and soul.

Kirtan is the art of group chanting in the musical tradition of India. The lyrics are usually in Sanskrit or Hindi. A beautiful
voice is not essential to Kirtan but more about singing from the heart. Simply listening attentively to the music may uplift, inspire and even heal the listener to some degree.

Join us and sing from the heart.
