Inspired by Swami Ramdevji’s belief that ‘good health is humanity’s birth right’, the event has been organised with the support of UK-based charity Patanjali Yog Peeth (UK) Trust in association with the people of Nottingham, Leicester and Birmingham with the sole aim of promoting yoga and good health.
Sanjay Jagatia of Patanjali Yog Peeth Trust UK said “Swami Ramdevji’s impact in India is without doubt inspiring – he has revolutionised yoga, leading to millions of people incorporating it in their daily routines with businesses taking yoga breaks and schools making it a part of their daily assemblies.
Currently, Swami Ramdevji is probably the most well known person in India, admired and followed by people from all walks of life, from politicians and Bollywood celebrities, to housewives and rickshaw drivers.
With India conquered and committed to improving their health and daily lifestyle, Swami Ramdevji has extended his message to people across the globe. Swami Ramdevji has successfully conducted over one hundred, week-long workshops around the world which have been attended by over 15 million people. Under his guidance, a large number people have claimed to have improved health and found relief from stress and persistent ailments”.
Sanjay Jagatia continued “The secret to Swami Ramdevji’s success is his ability to simplify the techniques of Pranayam Yoga and teach it in a way that makes it easy for everyone – young or old. The impact of his teachings are evident across India, where you can often find men rubbing their nails in hopes that it will prevent them going bald and elderly people trying to improve their memories by breathing through alternate nostrils.
To fresh eyes, some of the exercises may seem slightly odd, but each has a purpose as are clearly explained by Swami Ramdevji and supported by his followers”.
