Yoga Training Center for NP to be established in Jaffna – 04 June 2014

“As yoga becomes increasingly diffuse and diverse, a single, common definition that can be agreed upon by everyone is all but impossible. Complicating matters further, the term yoga has been in use for several thousand years and has shifted in meaning many times.

Since the primarily concern is the modern interpretation of the physical practices of yoga, it is there that we will look for our definition.The word yoga comes from Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language. It is a derivation of the word yuj, which means yoking, as in a team of oxen. In contemporary practice, this is often interpreted as meaning union. Yoga is said to be for the purpose of uniting the mind, body, and spirit.”


A Yoga Training Center for Northern Province will be setup in Jaffna with the support of Governor’s Secretariat, Jaffna. A discussion in this regard was held at Governor’s Secretariat, Jaffna on 04th June 2014. Governor of the Northern Province GA Chandrasiri convened the meeting.

Yoga trainers and representatives of yoga centers took part at this discussion. They gave valuable ideas for the training center.

Secretary to the Governor L.Ilaangovan and Asst. Secretary JX Selvanyagam were also present at this meeting.
