  • Over 1,000 Chinese Yoga enthusiasts on Wednesday participated in the India-China Yoga conference in Kunming city. The five-day conference will feature activities including courses from Indian Yoga masters and yoga introductions.

  • The event is jointly organised by the Foreign Affairs and Overseas Chinese Affairs Offices under the municipal government and the China-India Yoga College in Kunming. The college was established last year during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to China, in Yunnan Minzu (Nationalities) University.

  • Official media reports said that over 3000 enthusiasts have turned up for training. College head Fang Zhen said yoga’s similarity to Chinese Tai Chi helps explain its growing popularity in China. Last year thousands participated in the first UN’s International Yoga Day held on 21 June.
