St. Martin celebrates the International Day of Yoga

Since its proclamation by the United Nations in 2014, the International Day of Yoga is celebrated annually around the world on June 21.

Today it is practiced in various forms around the world and continues to grow in popularity. Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual 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.

The Embassies of the India of Paris and Caracas requested the Association of Indians of Saint - Martin and The Indian Merchants Association (Sint Maarten) to organize a demonstration on Sunday, June 25 at the François Matthew sports hall from 10:00 am to noon. During this free morning session which is open to all, certified professors will give classes in French and English.

"Yoga for Health”

The theme for the 2017 celebration, organized by the Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations, is 'Yoga for Health.' The theme highlights the fact that yoga can contribute in a holistic way to achieving an equilibrium between mind and body. This approach to health and wellbeing can make a direct and useful contribution to humankind's quest to achieve sustainable development and move towards lifestyles that are in harmony with nature.
