Thukchuk heads to Nepal to display yoga skill
GANGTOK, July 20: Thukchuk Lachungpa will be displaying his hidden talent – yoga skill – during the two-day long yoga camp scheduled to be held at Kathmandu from July 23.
A nine-member delegation of the newly formed organisation ‘Healthy Self’ headed by its founder Lachungpa today left for Nepal, after the flagging off was done by the president of Vividh Kala Akademi of Sikkim, Kiran Rasaily.
Speaking to media persons, Rasaily said Lachungpa will be demonstrating yoga skills in Kathmandu on both the days. He added that this was for the first time that a team from Sikkim is going out in this kind of programme.
The team, it is informed has been invited by Swami Haridas and the members of Radha Manav Uthan Samiti of Kathmandu.
Lachungpa, who is also the president of Sikkim Citizen Forum and a social worker, said that his new organisation ‘healthy self’ was adopted to keep one healthy and to synchronize one’s mind, soul and body. When asked about his experiences in the field of imparting yoga, he said that he derives enormous joy and happiness after the workout, which is why he wants to share this joy and happiness with the fellow citizens.
Lachungpa has already adopted this skill in Sikkim and is working successfully. He has also promised to hold a similar camp in Gangtok upon his return from Nepal.
