The Kensington Palace tweeted a message of congratulations to the High Commission of India on the successful celebrations in London of the second International Day of Yoga. The day-long event was held at Potters Fields park and saw the participation of 10,000 people from all walks of life participating in various yoga and meditation sessions.
The felicitations from Kensington Palace came soon after the successful visit to India by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in April 2016 during which Prime Minister Modi and the Royal Couple discussed the philosophy and practice of the ancient Indian tradition of Yoga and its global recognition today.
The High Commission of India and the Government of India Tourist Office in London, in collaboration with various yoga institutions, held an event at The Nehru Centre as a prelude to the International Day of Yoga. The event was attended by over 50 participants, representing different walks of life. The event also included a yoga demonstration and a meditation session by ‘Heartfulness.’
