As many of you know, I have always wanted to travel to India. When I started to deepen my Yoga practice, I began to find the importance of respecting the roots of Yoga, not just worshiping the asana. I became thirsty for information about the rich history of Yoga and of India. I am constantly looking for ways to deepen my practice and expand my knowledge. My goal is to take a year (or more) off to study in India, but for now I will continue to learn in the great state of Texas.
Sunday, June 21 is the International Day of Yoga declared by the Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi. I love the idea of everyone joining together to practice. No matter what level, we will all connect in practice of asana, meditation and pranayama.
I will be attending the International Day of Yoga hosted by the Consulate General of India in Houston to celebrate this great day for yogis. There will be free classes all day with a Yoga Fair explaining the roots of Yoga, and how it can impact your life. If you are in the Houston area, make sure you drop in for a class.
“Let June 21 spread the message of Yoga, and all are invited to be part of this celebration for peace and harmony – in our lives, in our wonderful city of Houston and in the world at large!” – Harish Parvathaneni, Consul General of India, Houston.
It’s never too late or too early to find the true meaning of Yoga in your life.
