Canberra embraced the second International Day of Yoga with free Yoga lessons throughout
the city and a seminar reflecting on the topic “Yoga: More than Physical”. The event was opened IMG_6190webcroppedby the President of the Canberra chapter of the Global Organization of People of Indian Origin, Dr. Rakesh Malhotra who organized the evening in conjunction with UNIC Canberra.

In his address, the Indian High Commissioner, H.E. Navdeep Suri, spoke of how the initial resolution by the General Assembly to adopt the Day had received more sponsors than any prior resolution and that this gave a true picture of the global appreciation of the benefits of Yoga.
