International Yoga Day

A chat with Robin Hanson, Nature Seychelles’ Eco-Health Manager and Green Yoga teacher

When and why did you get into yoga?
When I was 20 years old, I hit rock-bottom after suffering from serious depression. Life seemed meaningless, I did not know what I wanted to do with my life and I felt utterly lost. I then started to search for a way to lift myself out of this and I found Buddhism and meditation. Suddenly, it was like there was light after stumbling around in pitch-black darkness.

Cousin Island Special Reserve is an important breeding site for seabirds. Nature Seychelles’ staff working on Cousin Island carry out seabird census at least once a year to determine the size of the breeding population as well as the long term trends. From 2009 to date, the censuses have been carried at least twice yearly.

In exactly one month, the first ever International Yoga Day will be celebrated worldwide. Under its Green Health Program, Nature Seychelles too will take part in the planned activities for the day, which are being organised locally by the High Commission of India.
