Starting the day with a good stretch


About 750 people gathered just after sunrise yesterday to start the day with a free yoga session at the Kallang Sports Centre.

It was part of worldwide celebrations of the second International Day of Yoga, which takes place tomorrow and is endorsed by the United Nations. A total of 140 countries are expected to participate.

Yesterday's two-hour session was organised by the group Nikam Guruji Yoga Kutir, which has been conducting free yoga classes here for 17 years.
