The International yoga day was first organized in 2015 in collaboration with the Embassy of India as well as Hungarian yoga schools to introduce healthy lifestyle and the importance of this Indian tradition to the audience. Several Hungarian universities and students joined the initiation to raise awareness.
This year the 4th International yoga day was celebrated as part of the 3d Ganga-Danube Festival in twenty-one cities of Hungary, including Eger, Győr, Debrecen, Veszprém and other university towns on 23 and 24 of June. Participants had the chance to take part in music and dance programs, public yoga classes, watch Bollywood movies and get acquainted with Indian culture. Indian experts were invited for the programs throughout the country to showcase this rich culture, including the ancient Ayurvedic medicine.
