International Yoga Day 2016- celebration

Tree for Life ,my NGO in association with NDMC , Health Fitness trust and Ministry Of AYUSH got together to celebrate International Yoga Day at Lodhi garden .

With around hundred yoga enthusiasts started their day at 6 am with us at  the lush green Lodhi garden .After a yoga session of 40 minutes some refreshments were given to all participants who came from all age groups and walks of life – housewives,retired officials ,school children ,youth ,media people and really old enthusiasts too ! A troupe performed a small dance skit singing praises of mother nature and yoga .

The oldest man attending the event was infact using a stick to walk while the youngest was a three old year girl accompanied by her mother .

Tree for life works on plantation on  environmental issues mainly ,hence we did a small gesture of gifting each participant with a sapling -tree and herbal plants .The message to spread greenery and conserve nature was well taken as people talked about trees and forest for atleast an hour after the event ,discussing the  variety of  herbal plants we were gifting them ! It was a beautiful race as to who would pick lavender ,lime,neem ,tulsi ,kari pasta,amaltas ,phycus and so on !!

The NDMC Chairperson Mr Naresh Kumar and Dr Bhurelalji -Chairman EPCA truly appreciated my  effort to link yoga with nature .
