Thursday, 1 November, 2018


1). It is with deep regret and sadness that we inform “Arihantsaran” of our member – Shardaben Sheth – Age 82 – on 23/10.  She was the wife of our member – Indravadan Sheth.  Both were our members from the beginning of NVK, and late Shardaben would always come in time and sit in the front row for Yoga.  We offer our sincere condolences to all members of the family and pray to Lord Mahavir to rest her soul in eternal peace and also give courage to the family to bear the loss with fortitude.  We will observe a minute’s silence to pray for her soul.

2). Today’s Warm up Yoga was conducted by Jayeshbhai Shah and Manishaben conducted Yogic poses to tone up muscles and ‘Pranayam’ to tone up internal organs. Many  thanks to both from Kendra.
