“Special thanks to the India High Commission in Uganda for organizing the International Day of Yoga. For some of us who are amateurs in the field of yoga, we got highlights of the importance of Yoga and its benefits on our mind and body. The practical sessions were spot on. As wellness campaigners, we need propel the awareness among our people about the importance of yoga especially during this era of mental health challenges,”
Wilfred Muhumuza (Programs Director) stated.

“We encourage everyone to participate in yoga. Participating in yoga classes can ease loneliness and provide an environment for group healing and support. Scientific evidence shows that yoga supports stress management,”
Carol Gomcom (Operations Manager) stated.

“Regular yoga practice helps to reduce levels of stress. I must say that several factors that contribute to heart disease, including high blood pressure and excess weight, can also be addressed through yoga,”
Diana Nyiramwiza (Corporates Manager) stated.

“This is the beginning of a close working partnership with the High Commission of India. There is so much we that we can do together to promote yoga in the country,”

The International Day of Yoga has been celebrated across the world annually on June 21 since 2015, following its inception in the United Nations General Assembly in 2014.Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice which originated in ancient India.

An invaluable gift of ancient Indian tradition, Yoga has emerged as one of the most trusted means to boost physical and mental well-being. The word “Yoga” is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj meaning “to join”, “to yoke” or “to unite”, symbolizing the unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between human and nature, and a holistic approach to health and well-being.
