We recently celebrated the fifth International Yoga Day in Qatar. The event was organised by the Indian Embassy at the iconic National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ).
It was a very well organised event that had good help from the volunteers. Thousands of people from different communities, including all age groups, gathered to mark the event. Yoga has many benefits that go beyond maintaing physical well-being. It also has mental health benefits and can also help people in maintaining a balanced metabolism, apart from reducing stress and improved energy and vitality.
Indian Ambassador P. Kumaran was the chief guest and his presence encouraged people to participate in this fitness regime.
The main yoga event was conducted by a reputed instructor and all the people followed the instructions. For the people present, it was quite a vision to see a mass yoga event taking place in Qatar.
