SUPPORT YOGA IN LITHUANIA BY ESTABLISHING THE RECORD – PERFORM THE TREE POSE WITH ALL OTHER PARTICIPANTS
The International Day of Yoga 2015 will be celebrated in Vilnius, the Capital of Lithuania, and also Kaunas, Klaipėda, Šiauliai, Panevėžys, Varėna, Tauragė, Marijampolė, Pasvalys, Utena, Biržai, Visaginas and Nida. The main accent of the celebration is the joint and simultaneous Tree pose (asana) performed in all cities. The number of participants will be counted and nominated to support the yoga movement in Lithuania and the preservation of nature in the world.
At 11.30 all participants will get ready and train themselves how to perform the Tree pose. This pose will be done by balancing on one foot with other foot brought to the thigh, or calf muscle, or the ankle of one’s standing leg. Palms have to be pressed together in a prayer position at the chest. For a greater challenge arms may be put overhead, eyes closed. Sharply at 12.00 everyone will concentrate and simultaneously with the rest participants in 12 Lithuanian cities will perform the Tree pose and will keep it for 15 seconds.
All are invited: families, children, seniors. Those willing to support yoga in Lithuania and participate in this record endeavour to come together at the stage on the green lawn next to the White bridge on the bank of the Neris River. It is easy. Everyone can participate. No special clothes or equipment needed.
This part of the IDY celebration is intended to support yoga in Lithuania and to pay attention to the preservation of nature.
