In A Historical First, Yoga Comes To Oz Parliament

In A Historical First, Yoga Comes To Oz Parliament

For the first time in history, International Day of Yoga was celebrated inside the Australian Federal Parliament on June 18, 2018, truly bending and twisting the movers and shakers of Australian politics. Vasudeva Kriya Yoga, and its founder Rajendra Yenkannamoole achieved this feat. “To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time Yoga is being performed inside any federal parliament in the world. I don’t believe this has happened even in India,” said Mr Yenkannamoole.

In collaboration with Mr Rampal Reddy Muthyala, chair of Liberal Party Victoria Multicultural wing, Vasudev Kriya Yoga performed yoga inside the Federal Parliament with Mr Tony Abbot and six other Members of the Parliament in attendance. Mr Abbot supported the cause and invited Vausdev Kriya Yoga to perform in the parliament next year as well. He revered Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for promoting and practicing yoga himself.

Vasudeva Kriya Yoga has been celebrating International Day of Yoga every year. They have organised public events and performed Suryanamaskars in the Victorian Parliament with many dignitaries including, MPs Ted Baillieu and John Pesutto in collaboration with Consulate General of India in Melbourne.

In a chat with TIT, Mr Yenkannamoole stated that he believes in promoting health and wellness in the traditional way, to learn and pass on the Vedic learnings and practice yoga for self-improvement for the benefit of society. Tushar Balapure, who is an IT professional by the day and a voluntary yoga teacher at his leisure times, also echoed the principles of Vasudev Kriya Yoga. He said that he has seen immense health benefits in himself and that has motivated him to give back to the community by teaching Yoga to others, adults and kids alike.
