This is our sec­ond an­nual one-week work­shop and we are de­lighted to see the num­ber of at­ten­dees only in­creas­ing. With this work­shop, we aim to con­trib­ute a drop in the ocean and en­cour­age peo­ple to un­der­stand the sig­nif­i­cance of yoga and in­cul­cate it in their daily lives,” said Binit Bhatt.
