June 21 2016 will be the second International Yoga Day instituted by the United Nations and greatly supported by the Indian Government. In preparation for the event Consulate General of India called a first meeting for the organizers and supporters of the Yoga Day.
Chaired by Indian Consul the meeting saw the participation of Ananda Marga representatives together with the representatives of others yoga organizations in New York. The familiar atmosphere of the meeting was conducive for offering several suggestions and practical points.
Acarya Abhiramananda Avadhuta of Ananda Marga conveyed the importance of working together for the best success of the event and it was agreed to held regular meeting from now on at the Consulate.
Every Thursday at 6:30 the Consulate of India hosts a yoga class which is ongoing since the last edition of the Yoga Day. In a similar fashion Ananda Marga offered to have regular meditation classes free of costs at the Indian Consulate provided that there will be sufficient number of participants. Ananda Marga is committed to bring Yoga at his maximum acceptance in all the communities for its vast spectrum of beneficial effects on human body and mind.
Ananda Marga in New York has been teaching yoga and meditation in several locations including Queens College, Senior Citizen Centers and Hindu Temples providing health and wellness counseling together.
Children and adults have become regular visitors of our Yoga Center located in Flushing at 149-02 Melbourne Avenue.
We greatly appreciate all the support received from all the members of the community which are engaged in the mission of bringing yoga and meditation at the reach of everybody.
