Exclusively for CorD Magazine in this video, Ambassador of India to Serbia H.E. Subrata Bhattacharjee announced the marking of the International Yoga Day to be held on Saturday 27 June 2020.
The Embassy of India in coordination with the City of Belgrade, yoga centres and instructors, will host a celebration of International Day of Yoga in Serbia in front of the main entrance to the Belgrade City Assembly on 27 June.
Besides Belgrade, the International Day of Yoga will be marked in around 15 towns across Serbia in the week between 21 and 28 June
The word “yoga” is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj meaning to bind, join, focus, apply. It also means union or communion. In that vein, the Embassy invites yoga instructors, yoga practitioners, enthusiasts and beginners to join the event at the plateau in front of the main entrance to the Belgrade City Assembly, Dragoslava Jovanovica 22.
Yoga T-shirts with the logo of International Day of Yoga will be distributed to participants, but we would appreciate if they bring their own yoga mats and arrive at 8:30 a.m. because the yoga class will begin at 9 a.m., honouring the recommendation of keeping a one-meter social distance.
This year’s event will be supported by Carnex which will promote its offer of vegetarian products.
