UK's Tanya Wells sings the yoga invocation at the UN International Yoga Day 2016

International Yoga Day- Tanya Wells, Artikrti
Befitting yoga's global appeal, I was delighted to hear the opening invocation song for the United Nations event  being sung by a singer called Tanya Wells, from the UK, accompanied by her band called the Seven Eyes. It was such a reverential and soothing rendition that we wanted to know more about Tanya Wells and her work. Singing effortlessly and so totally immersed in the moment her song made me think- "wow, isn't this truly a culture connect of the best kind". For a singer from a totally different culture, to be able to master the intonations of the language, understand the nuances of meaning and be lost in the mood really pointed to someone who had really tasted India.

International Yoga Day 2016- Connecting our Collective Energies

Artikrti celebrates Yoga: The second International Yoga Day is just around the corner- June 21st, 2016 will mark the second time cultures from around the world will unite to commemorate Yoga as the way to rejuvenate our body, mind & soul. Collectively yoga practitioners spread over 100 countries will dedicate themselves to the spirit of what yoga stands for- to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness.

To us at Artikrti, there can be no other unifying symbol of the mingling of our different cultures, as this global event that celebrates yoga. 

She shows us how to live yoga, to be yoga, not just how to do yoga.

This memorable headline is a line from Coral Brown's post in the Yoga Journal [Look for the link below]. The "she" she is referring to is India.

But before I get to the essence of her experience, a word on why this post. For some time now, I have been toying with an idea that I want to share. Since this blog is all about "Culture Connect with India" I have been wondering how I can get others to share their experiences about connecting with India. Nothing better than a Scandinavian or an Irish or a Spaniard or an American talk about how she sees India through her lens,
