World Yoga day in Luxembourg

Published Sunday June 21 2015

Hundreds of people participated in a giant yoga session in Kirchberg on Sunday, part of Luxembourg's contribution to the first World Yoga Day.

Men, women, grandparents and toddlers turned out at the park beside the Coque leisure centre in Kirchberg to take part in the Ancient Indian practice.

Stretching, breathing and holding specific poses, the participants looked calm and relaxed, despite the threat of grey rainclouds overhead.

Most came wrapped up warm with waterproofs on-hand in case of rainshowers.

Luxembourg was one of 192 countries around the world to participate in the day which was founded by the United Nations this year.
