IYC Gibraltar celebrated World Yoga Day 2023 at Sandy Bay Beach.
The word ‘Yoga’ deriving from Sanskrit means to unite or yoke. The various forms of yoga are now practiced widely all over the world. Recognizing its universal appeal and popularity, on Dec 11th 2014, the United Nations proclaimed 21st June as the International Day of Yoga – a day aimed to raise awareness about the power and benefits of this ancient practice.
The session started with some Pranayama and Mantra; followed by a short Integral Yoga session. Our final minutes were spent with a cleansing walking meditation on the shoreline and a circle of unity.
