HSS (UK) takes the International Day of Yoga nationwide.
The 21st of June has now firmly been established as the International Day of Yoga (IDY), initiated by the Honourable Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, as a celebration of this wonderful gift to the world. Over the last 5 years, every corner of the world has marked this day with positive energy, and a message of peace and harmony.
HSS (UK), formed of Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh and Hindu Sevika Samiti, has supported this initiative since its inception, and this year, HSS (UK) will be taking the message of Yoga nationwide hosting IDY events in over 30 cities and towns across the country with an expected participation of over 2,500 people of all ages. Each event will bring together an energizing and invigorating Yoga programme open to all abilities, focusing on Ashtanga Yoga, a more traditional form of Yoga, whilst also taking participants on a journey through the philosophy and history of Yoga. A full list of locations hosting an HSS (UK) IDY event is listed below:

HSS (UK) is also one of the selected partners of the High Commission of India, organising the formal celebrations on 21st June, hosted at both India House, Aldwych and the iconic London landmark, St Paul’s Cathedral. HSS (UK) will be delivering an Ashtanga Yoga session at 3pm on this day at India House.
HSS (UK) for over 50 years, has been teaching, practising and promoting the core essence of Yoga through weekly activities across its 110 centres nationwide. Through structured curriculum, HSS (UK) has taught the foundations of Yoga to all ages. From as young as 4 years of age, participants have understood the benefits of applying Yoga to their daily lives to build a healthy mind and body, and this message has continued across the generations to support healthy living in older ages.
Yoga, however, transcends many boundaries to a much wider message of peace, harmony and above all unity. Underpinned by the notion of Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah, may ALL be happy, Yoga has the power to harness the human spirit and bring collective effort. By investing in ourselves we stand better to serve all those around us. It is with this essence that HSS (UK) works with three core tenets across all of its activities of Sangathan (collective spirit), Sanskar (global values) and Sewa (service to others).
