Tuning in to a virtual International Festival of Yoga

Tuning in to a virtual International Festival of Yoga

The JKYog International Festival of Yoga, a first-of-its-kind worldwide online yoga festival, is planning seven days of free yoga and holistic health classes, interactive workshops and seminars from June 20.

Organisers say that nearly 100 unique classes, workshops, and seminars with experts and professionals as well as keynote sessions with Swami Mukundananda, world-renowned authority on yoga, spirituality and mind management, will form part of the festival. Celebrating International Day of Yoga (IDY), marked by the United Nations on June 21 annually, is a golden opportunity to invest in your holistic health and nourish your body, mind, and soul. This time of the year many unique offerings abound allowing you to tap into the rich timeless treasures of yoga.

Some guidance on how to celebrate IDY combined with a little planning will give participants a head-start in helping you start reaping the benefits, the organisers say.

Yogic science

The mission is to offer a chance for newcomers to yoga to dip their feet into it or dive deeper into the vast body of divine knowledge embodied in the yogic sciences.

The festival will encourage people to set aside time for one of the many special yoga and holistic health events taking place around the world.

If you haven't yet set aside some personal quiet time daily to nourish and nurture yourself, take this opportunity to create sacred time for reflection and practice, says JKYog. They say that people must start by carving out a time period to successfully unplug from the outside world without distraction. The length of time is less important but being consistent is critical.

If people have fallen away from this practice, this is a great time to renew your commitment to it, it says.


JKYog says people can use this time by practicing a few yoga poses, meditation, pranayam (breathwork), guided relaxation, reading or contemplating scriptures and listening to devotional music.
?Your life path follows the path of your mind. Keep your mind engaged in positivity and pass it forward. The more you elevate your thoughts the higher places you will go.
It adds: Yoga is much more than a physical exercise on a mat. Leaving out the mind from yoga omits key integral parts of the yogic formula for health and happiness. Yoga cultivates a positive attitude and gives a yogi traction to break the gravity of negative thoughts.
?We tend to underestimate the power of the mind, yet it is the mind that makes or breaks you in any given situation.

Mind management

Swami Mukundananda, an international authority on mind management, will guide people through simple steps with tangible action items arming virtual followers with the tools to transform your mind.
?What makes us truly successful in life is how you face adversity. Success in good health and happiness does not happy by accident. Challenges and difficulties persistently arise despite your best effort.
JKYog International Festival of Yoga said people will have a free opportunity to develop individual tool kits. It said that yoga is a gift of inner calmness, rejuvenation, strength, revitalised energy, and more.
