TO mark the occasion of International Yoga Day and World Motorcycle day, Big Biking Commune, one of India’s and South East Asia’s largest aggregator platform for biking community celebrated the second edition of World Moto Yoga Day. The live-streamed virtual yoga programme for bikers was hosted by seasoned bikers who are yoga masters themselves. The Motoyogis Yogabandhu Prashanth and Sameera Dahiya performed specially curated yoga asanas for bikers as they celebrated their passion for Yoga and Biking.
This year the Big Biking Commune also released a special booklet ‘Yoga for Bikers’ which compiles 18 yoga asanas specially curated for the bikers to help them enjoy a healthy motorcycling life. The book was released by Sanjay Shreevats, Regional Director, Ministry of Tourism, Govt of India.
While bikers ride their way with passion there are times when it takes a toll on their overall health and fitness. While some make it a point to be fit and healthy, there can be few who miss out on their fitness journeys and so Yoga is one way through which people can stay hale and healthy. With great fitness come long rides!
Speaking about the event, Arun Kumar, Convener, Big Biking Commune said “Last year, we had our first edition of Motoyoga where we had gathered bikers from the city to perform yoga under the supervision of yoga instructors. This year too we wanted to observe this day and reach out to bikers across India through our social media platform. We had six live sessions spanning over two weeks where Motoyogis performed specific asanas for bikers. We would like to thank Incredible India, India Tourism –Chennai, Carbanodo and several biking clubs across the country for making this initiative a great success. There was an overwhelming response from the bikers across India for the sessions and we believe this has helped the community at large.” The live sessions reached around 5000 bikers and as part of the programme, a contest was also held where bikers from across 20 cities took part and won exciting prizes.
