SGLI: India

June 30, 2017

Our first activity of the day was yoga. For me, the yoga session was quite challenging and fulfilling. We learned multiple poses, including those from Sun Salutation. The outdoor yoga was very meditative and refreshing. The yoga class was the first time I have tried yoga, and I look forward to future classes of yoga, both here in India and back in the States.

After yoga, we headed up to our room for a presentation by Allen Murabayashi, a graduate from the class of 1990. I can say, without doubt or embellishment, that his presentation was easily one of the most powerful, entertaining, inspiring and engaging keynotes I have witnessed.

After lunch, we listened to a lecture on religion and peace by an Oakridge teacher. One quote I particularly enjoyed from her was, "Heaven is something to perceive in ourselves."

For me, this was my favorite day of the trip thus far.
