Why Yoga?

Yoga is an extremely subtle science which focuses on bringing harmony between the body and the mind. It is an art and science for healthy living. The aim of yoga is to overcome all kinds of sufferings that lead to a sense of freedom in every walk of life with holistic health, happiness and harmony.


Our state of mind highly influences the quality of work, productivity and interpersonal skills. Yoga is a time tested practice that cultivates and strengthens the mental and physical health.

As part of celebration of IDY 2018, the Embassy of India in Cairo, will be organizing special events in three cities of Egypt as detailed below:

21st June 2018, 5 pm @ Elhoraiya Park Near Cairo Opera House, Cairo.
