TWO yoga experts from the Bharatiya Yog Sansthan organisation in India are in the country to train people interested in yoga activities.

A World Hindu Economic Forum (WHEF) Pacific statement said the experts would integrate simple yoga postures of well-balanced movements linked with easy breathing techniques and also provide health benefits to both the body and mind.

Bharatiya Yog Sansthan, established in 1967, is a registered Indian social, cultural and non-profit organisation.

"The organisation firmly believes in the Bharatiya cultural heritage and aims to protect and preserve it," the statement said.

"At present, more than 2000 free yog centres are operating throughout Bharat, India with the assistance of dedicated and efficient yog instructors trained by the Sansthan. Free yog centres have been opened overseas in Mauritius, Australia, Fiji and United Kingdom."

The yoga experts, the statement said, were Sharat Chandra Agarwal and Des Raj.

"Mr Agarwal is a graduate of Delhi University and has retired as deputy general manager from the International Airports Authority of India. He has been associated with Bharatiya Yog Sansthan for the last 25 years.

"Mr Raj is the general secretary of Bharatiya Yog Sansthan. He has visited all over India to deliver lectures on ashtang yog.
