by Dian Singh

YMSTT LogoYoga Meditation Society of Trinidad & Tobago (YMSTT), in collaboration with the International Day of Yoga Committee of Trinidad & Tobago and the High Commissioner of India, hosted 108 Surya Namaskars at the Diwali Nagar site, Chaguanas.

Alakshya Chaitanya (Alexander Benjamin) initiated the morning's activity with the Dhyana mantra along with the practice of Surya Namaskar and its significance. [Note: Alexander is a mantra initiator and a member of the AHYMSIN Adhyatma Samiti.]

This was followed with a demonstration of the steps as taught by Ashutosh Sharma of the Himalayan Tradition.

Kelvin Rampersad of YMSTT chanted a Surya mantra before each Surya Namaskar was done.

After completion of the 108 Surya Namaskars, guided relaxation and pranayama took place.

Short talks by Dr. Deepak Pandey of the Indian High Commission and Mr. Deoroop Teemal, chairman of International Day of Yoga TT, followed.

Water and fruits together with handouts were given, ending a very successful practise of 108 Surya

Namaskars open to the public and led by YMSTT.
