As a prelude to the Second International Yoga day, around 100 countries across the world along with 145 cities in India welcomed their Sunday with sun salutations (Surya Namaskars) as part of the Sun Never Sets on Yoga campaign today.
Organised by The Art of Living ,the campaign envisioned the Surya Namaskar traveling around the world for 24 hours as groups of people from different geographies came together to practice this ancient yogic technique. This magnificent event spanning five continents witnessed the world literally wake up to yoga. Participants performed sun salutations in front of prominent landmarks including India Gate, Art of Living International center, Bangalore, Worli Sea link, Chittorgarh fort, etc.
“Just like the Sun, Yoga is age-old and yet ever-new. It is a holistic way of life that integrates all elements to make a prayerful discipline uniting the body, mind and soul,” said Kamlesh Barwal, Global Head, The Art of Living Yoga.
