International Yoga Day at Fresno, California


International Yoga Day was celebrated in Fresno on June 20th, a day ahead of the official date, at the advice given by the local participating yoga studios in order to avoid conflict with Father’s Day celebrations. In view of the sizzling hot weather, the celebration was moved from the Peace Garden at California State University, Fresno to an air conditioned hall at the university.
The program was observed from 5 to 7 pm and included short speeches and the prepared video message from The Honorable Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi. The powerful message was displayed on a large screen for the benefit of the audience and was highly appreciated. Many of those assembled were seeing the face of Prime Minister Modi for the first time.

About 130 people attended the celebration and about 90 participated in the yoga exercises, including Pranayama, conducted by different yoga studio instructors.

The program was organized under the leadership of Dr. Sudarshan Kapoor, Prof. Emeritus at Fresno State in collaboration with Council of Indian Organizations of the Central Valley, India students club at Fresno State, Peace and Conflict Studies program at Fresno State, Hindu Temple of Fresno, Raja Yoga Meditation Center of Fresno and seven local yoga studios. Participating local yoga studios included Blue Moon Yoga, Coil Yoga, Fresno State Yoga, Perfect Balance Yoga, Sister’s Yoga, Yoga Center of Fresno and Yoga for Living.
