International Day of Yoga

International Day of Yoga (21 June) is being celebrated in Hong Kong with an event convened by the Consulate General of India and hosted by the Asia Society Hong Kong.

Yoga - The Hope for the Future, by Maha-Mandeleshwar Swami Abhishek Chaitanya Giri Maharaji

The world is embroiled in the storms of ideologies, idiosyncrasies, religious dogma and blatant materialisms. Man living in this time is desperate to find a way out of this madness. The important question before humanity today is, "Is it possible to find a sense of togetherness without losing the beauty of diversity?" Yoga stands very silently but firmly offering a solution to humanity without condemning any form of faith or threatening religious sentiments. Hence, the solution offered by Yoga to the world is indeed very valuable. One needs to understand the yogic perspective of life.

Additionally, Swamiji will speak about the benefits of leading a yogic life. Yoga is dexterity in action, a balance of emotions and alertness of intelligence. Since these are the most important elements of a fruitful life, a lifestyle based on an understanding of these postulates will blossom these virtues in one’s life. Yogic life is a life-affirming philosophy and practice.

Date: Sunday, 18 June 2017, 10:00am - 11:00am

Iyengar Yoga For All Bodies, by George Dovas

B.K.S. Iyengar has presented Yoga for all bodies — young, old, healthy, sick, injured, flexible and stiff. Not only does Iyengar Yoga cater for all types of physical bodies, it also offers ways of practicing Yoga for the differences in the subtle bodies (mental and emotional bodies). As people are of a different mental and emotional makeup, B. K. S. Iyengar has expertly prescribed Yoga taking into account these differences. This session will demonstrate how Yoga can truly be practiced by everyone.

Date: Sunday, 18 June 2017, 11:15am - 12:15pm
