Energy Yoga Launches with a Big Bang

Posted by jean on 24 Jul 09

The Energy Yoga launch held over the weekend on 18th July 2009 was a big bash! It was a day filled with exciting activities such as yoga performances, a memorable speech from the Health Minister Dato’ Sri Liow Tiong Lai, ribbon cutting ceremony and a feisty lion dance, to name a few. The event was held at the courtyard just in front of Energy Yoga at Plaza Damas. Lots of people and members of the media were already there by 9.45a.m. Soon, the guest of honour, Health Minister Dato’ Sri Liow Tiong Lai arrived and the event pushed off.
