Yogavani turns 3!! 

Congratulations to TEAM YOGAVANI on completing 3 years of publication!

It is an amazing team and I wish to congratulate the dedicated and determined Shruti Prabhakar for her amazing contributions along with Deepak Rawat.

I must place on record our heartfelt gratitude to all the loving members of our IYA Family Worldwide for their unstinting support in this noble endeavour. The Divine blessings of our esteemed Governing Council members, the benevolent guidance of our respected Executive Councilmembers and the loving camaraderie of our Governing Board Members enables us to manifest the goodness of Yoga in every issue.

The word TEAM can be understood as an acronym for the statement:

Together… Everyone… Achieves… More!

And, this is so very true of the YOGAVANI TEAM.

The New Year always begins with Yoga at Pondicherry and this month we highlight memorable images from two international events held by the Government of Puducherry and the Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth.
The Puducherry Tourism Department must be congratulated for sponsoring an International Yoga Festival every year since its inception in 1993. This year was the 28th such congregation of National and International Yoga experts at the Land of the Siddhas.

The honorable Chief Minister Shri N Rangasamy highlighted the immense contributions of Yogamaharishi Dr Swami Gitananda Giri towards the development of Yoga in Pondicherry. “Thanks to him, so many have made Yoga their life locally and internationally” said he.
We also share the grand success of the 2nd International Health Research Convention held from 20-22 January 2023 at Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth with more than 3500 participants and 300 resource persons attending nearly 46 events both online and in-person.

The ISCM of SBV organized a triad of events that included an International Conference on Role of Yoga & Music Therapies in Promoting Salutogenesis as well as two pre-conference workshops on Yoga therapy and Music therapy that were of the highest standard.

We record our deep gratitude and appreciation to the benevolent leaders of the Indian Yoga Association, World Federation of Music Therapy, University Putra Malaysia, ICYER at Ananda Ashram, Kaivalyadhama, Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram and Svaram Auroville who provide inspirational support at so many levels. We couldn’t have done it without your able assistance and heartfelt encouragement.

We also have been overwhelmed by the messages of blessings, keynotes and invited talks given by our resource persons who motivated everyone to do their best for the promotion and propagation of salutogenesis worldwide. Your inspirational presence both offline and online has touched all participants deeply.

Seeking the blessings and support of each and every member of our IYA Family as we embark on the fourth year of the Yogavani journey.

May we all be worthy children of our Divine Mother Yoga!
