Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's Art of Living Foundation will celebrate International Yoga Day on 21 June across 100 countries.

Art of Living Foundation founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar will initiate Yoga Day celebrations at the European Parliament, Brussels, by leading the parliament members through a guided meditation at the prestigious Yehudi Menuhin Hall.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar will also conduct a series of public events on Sudarshan Kriya, Yoga, and meditation in Washington DC, Boston, Columbus, Minnesota, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle as well as the United Kingdom, according to a statement issued by the Foundation.

It also said that over 20,000 people are expected to take part in Yoga Day programmes to be held in Delhi, while about 16,500 in Mumbai, at four venues.

In Mumbai, a programme will be held in Borivali East on 19 June, while the other three would take place on 21 June at Carter Road in Bandra, Poisar Gymkhana in Kandivali West and in CIDCO exhibition ground in Navi Mumbai.

"Just like the sun, Yoga is age-old and yet ever-new. It is a holistic way of life that integrates all elements to make a prayerful discipline uniting the body, mind and soul," Kamlesh Barwal, Global Head, Art of Living Foundation said.
