International Day of Yoga – Canadian community practice


We came together…  Nous avons pratiqué ensemble…

…20 June 2021 for the 7th annual International Day of Yoga, under the guidance of Niren Pandya, of Toronto ON.



Nearly 200 practitioners of Iyengar yoga came together this morning to mark the 7th International Day of Yoga.  This event was sponsored by IYAC/ACYI and organised by a small but dedicated group of members.  The community included practitioners from across Canada and even a little further afield.  Just a few of them can be seen in the gallery shot below.



Deanna Oliphant, of Calgary AB, opened the session, welcoming all and introducing Niren to those who might not have met him before.





After the Invocation to Patanjali, Niren took us through a series of poses, including seated poses, standing poses, forward bends,  twisting poses and inversions.  Throughout, he interspersed discussions on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, bringing both action and wisdom to our day.
