(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Ash Kalra (D-San Jose) led a special Yoga celebration at the State Capitol to mark the first International Day of Yoga in California. Assemblymember Kalra, who is the first Indian American to serve in the State Legislature, authored Assembly Concurrent Resolution 97, which declared June 21, 2017 as the International Day of Yoga in California, to raise awareness about the important benefits of Yoga. “Yoga is an invaluable gift from India, rooted in Hindu and Vedic traditions, that’s practiced by millions of people of all backgrounds, cultures, traditions, religions, and nationalities throughout the world,” said Kalra.
