Mysuru, June 22:- Unlike previous years, the 6th International Day of Yoga on Sunday (June 21) was different. The mass yoga performance was shelved due to coronavirus pandemic. Most enthusiasts performed yoga at their homes to mark the day. District administration and yoga associations of the city organised a yoga performance at the Mysuru Palace premises and live telecast the event on Facebook to help those who were performing at home.
“Thousands of yoga performers were observing yoga day at the premises of Mysuru Palace for the past 5 years. This time, yoga day was observed by performing yoga at homes to prevent the spread of coronavirus,” said Srihari of GSS Yoga Foundation.
“Mysuru city is known for yoga. Even the Wadiyars of Mysuru had given a lot of prominence to yoga. Perform yoga regularly to increase your immunity,” he added.
