The High Commission of India in Namibia staged an online yoga session on Sunday, 21 June to mark the sixth International Day of Yoga under the theme 'Yoga for Health-Yoga at Home'.
High Commissioner Prashant Agrawal said that the global community is battling COVID-19, and Yoga is one way to overcome various challenges sparked by the pandemic.
"Not only does practising yoga boost our immunity to counter various illnesses, but it also gives us a sense of calm, peace and battle stresses," he said.
Nikhila Hiremath, a conductor of Indian Culture and Yoga at the Commission, said that the session mainly focused on the Common Yoga Protocol.
"Common Yoga Protocol is suitable for anybody as it entails a set of easy yogic postures. Yoga offers something for everyone," she said.
The United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution in December 2014 declaring 21 June as the International Day of Yoga.
