MEMBERS of the public took advantage of the free yoga session commemorating the International Day of Yoga at the Labasa Civic Centre this morning.

National Federation Party member of parliament Parmod Chand while officiating at the event, said June 21 was the official International Yoga Day but since it was a weekday the celebration was moved to the weekend.

Mr Chand said the theme for this year’s celebration ‘Yoga for Diabetes’ was highly appropriate.

“Just as we all want good governance, transparency and accountability in our nation, we must ensure we maintain good governance practices in our health,” he said.
