Supporting Scotland’s campaign for good health, the Patanjali Yog Peeth (UK) Trust is to provide a complimentary coach service from Edinburgh to enable as many people as possible to attend Scotland’s largest yog event at Glasgow’s SECC this month.
The early morning service from the centre of the capital will take guests to the hall in time for a 6am start. Organisers will provide Edinburgh participants with a light breakfast before they return to the city at 8.30am.
The six-day event, to be held from 19-24 July, is the only Scottish date and is expected to draw thousands of participants from across the UK and beyond.
It will be led by foremost yog practitioner Swami Ramdev Ji, whose ability to simplify yog techniques has provided numerous health benefits to millions world-wide.
Involving a series of pranayam (systematic breathing techniques) combined with yog asana postures, it is suitable for all ages and abilities. If practiced regularly and efficiently key benefits can include: reduced stress levels, improved circulation, healthier joints, enhanced strength, agility and body tone, weight regulation, boosted immune and digestive system, enhanced energy, concentration and flexibility.
Following a series of highly successful free yog classes throughout the Glasgow area in addition to the recent well-attended launch of the upcoming yog event in July, the Patanjali Yog Peeth (UK) Trust is confident that the workshop in July will serve as a catalyst to encourage healthy living throughout Scotland.
With an aim of bridging generational, social and cultural gaps and heading Scotland’s campaign for better health, Member of the PYP (UK) Trust Sunita Poddar said: “Undoubtedly this special event will initiate the beginning of a new era in Scotland centred on the mantra that good health is humanity’s birthright. Importantly, the six-day event further supports Scotland’s drive to become a healthy nation and will unify communities across the country. The diverse turnout of all ages and background at our free on-going classes clearly indicates the keen interest shown by Scots in improving their mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.”
Six-day entry passes are available through the SECC www.secc.co.uk or by contacting their box office at 0870 040 4000.
