The Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) organized a two day International Yoga Conference from June 27th to 28th at Senate Chambers, University of Kwazulu-Natal (UKZN), Durban, South Africa. The conference was focused on presentations and panel discussions on “Yoga in Africa: Current status & future potential” and “Yoga for Self and Society” which was moderated by the domain experts in the field of Yoga from India, South Africa, Tanzania and Egypt. 

 The conference highlighted the significance of Yoga as it is more than just physical exercise; it is a holistic approach to well-being that harmonizes the body, mind, and soul. It teaches us patience, discipline, and the art of living in the present moment and provides a pathway for collective healing and harmony.

 Egyptian Yoga instructor, Ms. MennaallahHesham Amin Aly, attended the conference and shared views on the status of Yoga in Egypt. In the last few years, Yoga has gained popularity in Egypt and now, hundreds of Yoga centers are working in different parts of Egypt providing Yoga training.  

 The important deliberations and outcome of the conference will make important contributions towards better understanding of Yoga’s positive impact on various dimensions of our health and happiness especially from an African perspective.
