The Embassy of India in Serbia, with the support of the City of Belgrade, organised an event marking International Yoga Day, this year on the plateau in front of Belgrade Kalamegdan Fortress’s Victor statue.
The International Day of Yoga was adopted in 2015 with a unanimous decision among all members of the United Nations General Assembly.
Yoga (Sanskrit meaning unity, merger, harmony, togetherness) symbolises the unity of spirit and body at the individual level, while at the social level it symbolises the unity of all the world’s nations, peace and love among peoples.
Several hundred yoga practitioners from across Serbia practised yoga in the open-air from 8am to 9am, in the presence of H.E. Narinder Chauhan, Indian ambassador to Serbia, and senior officials of the City of Belgrade.
