India moved a Resolution in the United National General Assembly to declare June 21 as the International Day of Yoga. The Resolution which was adopted unanimously on December 11, 2014 received a record 177 co-sponsorships of a total of 193 members, thus creating a new record for the highest number of co-sponsorship countries ever for a resolution of such a nature in the United Nations. The importance of Yoga can be judged from the fact that the Resolution was adopted within 75 days of the Indian Prime Minister proposing it in his address to the UNGA.
For those of us who can’t get to Dublin for the event, there are various other things going on around the country, including 108 sun salutations at dawn on Cross beach 4.50-6am! This is open to everyone who wants to come, but I’m also advertising it as a Mensa event – Yoga is intelligence, embodied! So come along, and come back for a cuppa and a snack and a chat afterwards, then spend the day enjoying all that Erris has to offer: I can give info, point out good picnic spots, organise maps and put you in touch with boathire, etc.
