  2. Dear Friends

    After our last R.U I went in search of my first Yoga Teacher’s Ashram in Thennakkumbura.Swami Sachchithanantha had this from ? 1952 onwards.

    He used to come to Jaffna from here and was king classes at Sivathondan Nilayam and at my Ramakrishna Mission School.By 1966 he was the founder of Integral Yoga in New Jersey in USA.All associated with Integral Yoga in the whole world were celeberating 50 years of this occasion.

    The sad thing is owing to developments around Mahaweli Ganga,I was told that this Ashram was removed.Does any one know where this Ashram moved to in the Central Province in Sri Lanka? PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

    Even long before the Indian Prime Minister got 21st of June declared as world Yoga day in 2016 THROUGH UNO for the first time Swami Sachchithanantha was giving lectures on Yoga at the UNO.

    By the way I was lucky to have one and a half hours Yoga Class with this Senior Most Yoga Trainer at the Yoga Festival in July last year at Reading in U.K and got her blessings.

    LET us with the 70th Birthday Of NHS celeberate the BIRTH OF YOGA AMONGST OUR YOUNG ONES.

    I RAISED THE QUESTION AT THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF MEDICINE WHETHER THE CARDIOLOGISTS WHO WERE LECTURING KNEW THAT IN USA SWAMI SACHCHITHANANTHA AND HIS DISCIPLE CARDIOLOGIST SHOWED HEART DISEASE CAN BE REVERSED BY YOGA.THREE OF THEM DID NOT KNOW.BUT ONE CARDIOLOGIST FROM GREAT ORMOND STREET AGREED AND ALSO TOLD THAT HE DOES SURYA NAMASKAR [ SUN WORSHIP] EVERY DAY.

    ONE HOUR OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY DAILY IN CHILD HOOD PREVENTS HEART DISEASE LATER IN LIFE.CAN THIS YEAR BE THE BIRTH OF YOGA [ INCLUDING LAUGHTER YOGA] BE AMONGST OUR YOUNGER POPULATION AND LET US SHARE THEIR PHOTOS THROUGH OUR WEB SITE.

    SREETHARAN.

  6. Thanks Rani for posting the video. Modern day exercises do not incorporate Yoga. Yoga has been in existence for thousands of years and it has never gone out of style.

    It is interesting to find out how the lady had her fall. I thought Yoga taught one balance and control of posture. The lady apparently recovered fully after the fall. Good for her. She looks great at her age.

    Louis Armstrong”s song ” When you’re smiling, ” says it all about smiling.
