TWO yoga experts are in the country to carry out yoga classes in Suva, Lautoka and Levuka.

Sharat Chandra Agarwal and Des Raj are part of the non-profit organisation Bharatiya Yog Sansthan which was established in 1967.

The organisation was established with the aim of providing great health benefits through the philosophy that the preservation and practice of cultural heritage is important for a balanced lifestyle.

"At present, more than 2000 free yoga centres are being run throughout Bharat (India), all the 365 days a year, by dedicated and efficient yoga instructors trained by the Sansthan," said a statement issued by the World Hindu Economic Forum.

"The experts believe in the 'train the trainers' concept and they are here in Fiji to train many who are interested in yoga."
