Belgium Set to Celebrate International Day of Yoga With Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

On June 21, 2015, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar will lead a special yoga event in the European Parliament (EP) in Brussels, following efforts by Indian ambassador to the European Union (EU) and Belgium Manjeev Singh Puri.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had given the call for an International Day of Yoga at the United Nations last September. A record 177 countries co-sponsored the resolution piloted by India and declared June 21, the day of Equinox, as the International Day of Yoga.


Ambassador Puri obtained the support of members from all political groups in the European Parliament (EP) and persuaded the Delegation for Relations with India in the EP to host the Brussels yoga event.

The Indian embassy in Brussels has also put together a broad group of yoga federations, schools and teachers from across Belgium and Luxembourg to celebrate the International Day of Yoga on June 21. The flagship would be a large public event in the central park of Brussels, the Bois de la Cambre. Many enthusiasts are expected to participate in a mass yoga program to coincide with events across the world.

A big participation at the June 21 event is expected from high-level representatives from the EU and Belgium.
