Yoga is not a mere tool for physical fitness but also a spiritual beacon for individual’s upliftment.

 

As Narendra Modi ji, Prime Minister of India, said at the UN General Assembly:

Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. This tradition is 5000 years old. It embodies unity of mind and body, thought and action, restraint and fulfillment, harmony between man and nature, a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.

International World Yoga Day MauritiusI personally practice yoga from the young age of 9. My first initiation to Asanas and Suryanamaskar was done via the ‘Indian Yoga Teacher’ offering ‘free courses in yoga’ at Triolet Shivala. Since then, i kept the habit of performing suryanamaskar (with the mantras) early morning, on an everyday basis. If on a day miss the Early Morning Yoga Session, then my body feels like lacking something. Here is a report of the First Yoga Day Celebration by the Hindu Swayamsewak Sangh (Mauritius): hssmru.org

Also, as an actor, Yoga must be practiced in the warming up exercise before doing a stage performance, or even for rehearsals.

Today, 18 June 2017, have the pleasure of attending the “Ayurveda & Yoga Scientific health AWARENESS workshop” organised by MEDA Ayur Yoga Peetha at Goodlands. The agenda includes a road show rally, and yoga methods, awareness in day to day health problems, ayurvedic consultation and Dynana (Mediation).

Here is Swami Ramdevs’ Message to Mauritius on Yoga:
