"Yoga has been celebrated annually here for the past decade, reflecting its value in the lives of our residents", said Commissioner Meyers. Originating from ancient India, yoga symbolizes a holistic approach to wellness, harmonizing the mind, body, and spirit through physical postures, breath control, and meditation.

While celebrating International Yoga Day is about embracing the path of inner peace and self-awareness, the day also had an additional educational mission. Fort Bend Emergency Medical Services were in attendance, giving demonstrations on first-aid techniques, including hands-only CPR.
