International Yoga Day (IYD) has been celebrated worldwide on 21st June since it’s inception in 2015 by Indian Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi. A deeply spiritual, physical and mental practice – what better way to celebrate this ancient Indian art form than with the beautifully peaceful backdrop of Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Kingsbury.
Over 100 aspiring yogis, young and old, male and female, gathered in Purushottam Mahal for the 90 minute guided breathing and asana practice, themed with creating ‘sthir’ and ‘sukham’ – stability and comfort. Yoga is especially dear to the disciples of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi London, not least because Acharya Swamishree Maharaj, an avid practitioner of yoga, inspired his disciples of all ages to adopt the practice and reap the benefits of a more stable, stronger and balanced life.
“A person’s good physical and mental health is regarded as being his wealth, he should look after that fortune”
Acharya Swamishree Maharaj
Yoga is now a regular part of many disciple’s lives, with multiple sessions held each week at the Mandir for the wide benefit to the community.
