The event, which has attracted hundreds to the iconic square for IDY over the years, will be held on the morning of June 20.
Meanwhile, for IDY2023 on June 21, the Nehru Centre in London will play host to a Pranayama Session led by Eddie Stern. He will focus on asana and pranayama to bring focus, calm, and quieten to the mind and body, all invaluable tools for managing the fluctuations of everyday life.
Stern is a Yoga instructor, author, and researcher from New York City. He began practicing Yoga in NY in 1987, followed by 19 years of study of Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore and went on to become a Yoga teacher to the celebrities in New York.
Over the past two decades he has focused on non-profit work providing access to Yoga for underserved youth in public education and those at risk to gun violence in inner cities. He is currently earning a Master’s degree in science for Yoga research and is the author of the bestselling ‘One Simple Thing, a New Look at the Science of Yoga and How it can Transform Your Life’, and creator of The Breathing App and Yoga365.
During the program at the Nehru Centre, Stern will discuss more about using the breath for nervous system regulation using the ancient science of Yoga and pranayama.
