International Yoga Day with French twist

On International Yoga Day, Embassy of France / Institut français joined the world in celebrating the holistic practice of yoga – with a twist.

New Delhi, 21 June 2016

”Get Into Paws-Mode” - a unique take on yoga that also invited participants to engage with the French language.

Numerous yogasanas are inspired from animals, such as the cat pose, the cow pose, the downward-facing dog pose, among others. Adding a French touch to the event, the French Institute presented asanas named after animals alongside the French names for these animals. Through this simple activity of a yoga session taught in French, participants exercised both their physical agility and their French language skills.

The French Institute also offered French hospitality to this Indian and international occasion by offering French breakfast after the yoga session.
