The Sivananda World Peace Foundation will be hosting the eight annual International Day of Yoga on Sunday, June 19. The event will take place from 8:30am until 11:30am at the Durban Amphitheatre.

“As we celebrate this day, we strongly emphasise that we all should live in harmony and peace. Yoga is essentially a discipline, which also brings harmony in all walks of life, and thus is known for disease prevention, health promotion and management of many lifestyle related disorders,”said Ishwar Ramlutchman Mabheka Zulu.The objective of celebrating the IDY is to create awareness on yoga and how it benefits everyone in better understanding the significance of traditional and authentic yoga techniques.“We wish for all the participants and members of the community to join hands in using yoga as a medium to promote unity and diversity in our beautiful province of KwaZulu-Natal. All yoga experts, who want to get involved in yoga programmes across the province, can give us their contact details,” he added.
