300 join international yoga day activity
Around 300 joined the free yoga and wellness activities dubbed “Hilom” in celebration of the Day of Yoga last June 19 at the Baguio Convention Center.
Mayor Benjamin Magalong (shown in photos doing the bikram yoga) led the participants who were treated to sessions featuring the different types of yoga particularly ashtanga, bikram and yin and other breakout activities during the whole-day affair.
The activities were facilitated by certified yoga teachers, yogis and yoginis in the city.
Yoga guru Gelie Dela Pena, one of the organizers, said the activity, the first ever observance of the International Yoga Day in the city, was a huge success and that they look forward to making it an annual event.
At present there are four yoga studios offering classes and trainings on the different yoga disciplines in the city.
Aside from this, there are five yoga communities where practitioners come together to undertake sessions.
