Sadhvi Daya Mata starts Yoga in Daily Life in China
Sadhvi Daya Mata from Vancouver was invited to a seminar tour in China - the first such tour for Yoga in Daily Life in China. She flew to Shanghai and then to Ningpo on the coast, south of the Yangtse delta, where she had a two-day YIDL workshop.
Next stop was Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province. There she held yoga classes in a Waldorf (Steiner) school - three yoga classes for children in grades 7, 8 and 9; and also a yoga class for teachers and parents the following day.
The third programme was a mountain retreat in Chongqing. Chongqing is also called Shancheng – city of the mountains. It is a city of 4.3 million people, situated in central China, in Sichuan province, and its administrative area is nearly as big as the whole of Austria.
Sadhvi Daya Mata wrote: "The reception and response for Yoga in Daily Life was very good. Throughout the whole journey we experienced warmness and hospitality that was overwhelming and beyond our expectations."
