Yoga Teacher Sangeeta Kumar says yoga is suitable for all people.

“What we have done today by putting all age group people on the stage so that it shows yoga is not meant for small children or teenage girls and boys, it’s meant for everybody, despite how you do it.”

This form of exercise became more common when people were fighting social isolation and depression during the pandemic.

Yoga is said to have a number of benefits and the Indian High Commission in Fiji is urging more people to participate in this ancient physical, mental, and spiritual practice.

The theme for this year’s International Day for Yoga is ‘Yoga for Humanity’.
