The Indian Cultural Centre, operated by the Consulate General of India in collaboration with Bali Yoga Community - Seger Oger - conducted a warm-up event on June 4, 2017, for the International Day of Yoga that traditionally marked on in Bali on Sunday, June 18, 2017.

Yoga is a 5,000-year-old physical, mental and spiritual practice. With its origin in India, Yoga aims to transform both the body and the mind. Accordingly, while addressing the UN General Assembly, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, called on world leaders to embrace International Yoga Day, saying that by changing lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change.

In response to this call, on December 11, 2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 21st each year as the International Day of Yoga.

To promote the International Day of Yoga Celebration to be held in Bali on June 18, 2017, the Indian Cultural Center in Bali hosted a warm-up Yoga event at Braja Sandhi Park on June 4, 2017. The event was attended by the Consul General of India in Bali, R.O Sunil Babu; the Director of JNICC (The Jawaharlal Nehru Indian Cultural Centre, Jakarta), Makarand Shukla; and ICC (Indian Cultural Centre, Bali) dance teacher, Preeti Sinha. During the warm-up event, Arun Yevle, a JNICC Yoga teacher, demonstrated Command Yoga Protocol for all participants.

A mass Yoga event will be held at the Puputan Margarana Field at Niti Mandala, Renon in Denpasar on June 18, 2017, to celebrate theInternational Day of Yoga. Open to the public without charge, the event begins at 6:00 am.

Last year’s celebration of the International Day of Yoga held on June 19, 2016, in downtown Denpasar attracted the participation of more than 2,000 enthusiasts.
