Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) with the support of the High Commission of India, Canberra, Australia and Cr Angela Owen raised curtains on International Day of Yoga for the year 2021, in Brisbane, Australia, through a FREE YOGA SESSION at Calamvale District Park, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, on June 13, 2021. The initiative was furthered under DJJS Holistic Health Program- Aarogya.
Since 2017, DJJS along with the support of Honorable Indian Consulate Mrs. Archana Singh and Cr Angela Owen has been conducting this event in Brisbane, Australia. DJJS is steadfast in its support of the initiative of our Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narender Modi Ji, to take this gem of Indian Cultural Heritage, called Yog (Yoga), to the world. It is a day to acknowledge the depths and breadths of knowledge, study, research, and wisdom of our saints and seers and educate the societies and cultures around the globe about its significance in our lives.
The torrid times humanity is going through in today’s scenarios makes it even more relevant to take this science, of our sages, to every home. Yog, popularly known as Yoga, is a holistic science for health and wellbeing which not only works on your body but transcends to the level of mind and soul while maintaining a complete equilibrium between all three of them.
Hundreds of yoga enthusiasts partook in the event and learned conventional yoga techniques to deal with stress, anxiety, and depression through DJJS's exclusive VILAKSHAN YOG model.
Further, Sadhvi Deepika Bharti Ji, a disciple of Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji from DJJS India, gave an insightful talk, busting myths around Yoga and broadly discussing the role of Maharishi Patanjali's Ashtang Yoga in the overall healing of body & mind.
Finally the participants vowed to make Yog (Yoga) an inseparable part of their lives. Honorable Indian Consulate Mrs. Archana Singh and Cr Angela Owen accoladed DJJS for this rejuvenating & insightful session.
