To celebrate the seventh International Yoga Day, people gathered at iconic Times Square in New York on June 20. The theme of the festival was ‘Solstice in Times Square 2021’.
The festival was attended by more than 3,000 yogis.
Consulate General of India, New York partnered with the Times Square Alliance to host the Yoga festival.
“As we celebrate yoga at the iconic Times Square – at the crossroads of the world, let us remind ourselves of the truly global embrace of yoga. Yoga was born in India but is part of global heritage today. Yoga is about health, well-being and about living in harmony with nature. Yoga is a way of life and we must try to practice it in its entirety, for a peaceful society and for a greener planet,” Randhir Jaiswal, Consul General, told the media.
The Yoga festival even showcased holistic health, Ayurvedic and nature-based wellness products from Tribes India (TRIFED) and other Indian companies.
