A seminar was held in the auditorium of the Cultural Centre with the title: „Workshop on Naturopathy: Ayurveda, Meditation, Yoga”. In view of the recently opened Ayush Information Centre at the Embassy, the aim of the event was to raise interest in alternative healing methods including Ayurveda, Yoga and Meditation in Hungary. This event was the first such workshop, a series of which is planned to be held in the future. For this reason several yoga, Ayurveda, and homeopathy practitioners were invited as well as members of the local Indian community and government.
The workshop started by the introduction of the Ayush Centre to the guests by Dr. Diksha Sharma, followed by a presentation on practical applications of ayurveda. Next, Ambassador Malay Mishra gave a lecture on meditation and yoga. This was followed by a break with light refreshments.
After the break a yoga class was started by Mrs. Melinda Irtl Földiné, Yoga teacher from the Tan Kapuja Buddhist University. This is intended to be a regular yoga course organized by the Cultural section of the Mission.
