I am glad to be part of the International Day of Yoga (IDY) 2023 celebrations organized by the Consulate General of India, Vancouver. The actual International Day of Yoga 2023 is falling on Wednesday, June 21, 2023 but the CGI Vancouver decided to celebrate it on Saturday, June 24, 2023 from 08:30 am to 10:30 am.
Come and be part of the event and practice Yoga in an open park. The event is free but prior registration is required. Please bring your own Yoga mat.
Yoga is not just about twisting your body into difficult postures, it is much more than that. It helps to expand your awareness, sharpen your intellect, & enhance your intuitive abilities. It teaches you to live in perfect harmony with the nature. That’s exactly the logo of International Day of Yoga explains. The IDY logo has a beautiful meaning & message for the humanity.
- The Folding of both hands in the logo Symbolize Yoga, the union, which reflects the union of individual Consciousness with that of universal Consciousness, a perfect harmony between mind & body, man & nature; a holistic approach to health & well being.
- The brown leaves symbolize the Earth element, the green leaves symbolize the Nature, blue symbolizes the Water element, brightness symbolizes the Fire element and the Sun symbolize the source of energy and inspiration.
- The globe symbolize Oneness – वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम् (Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam). The world is one village, we are all one.
- The logo reflects harmony and peace for humanity, which is the essence of Yoga.
