At the end of this January I will be venturing to Northern India moving from west to east and to the Bay of Bengal, Kolkata/Calcutta.
Calcutta, is the Anglicized version of the Bengali name Kalikata. In 2001 the government of West Bengal decided to officially change its capital city’s name to Kolkata to reflect its original Bengali pronunciation.
According to some, Kalikata is derived from the Bengali word Kalikshetra, meaning “Ground of (the goddess) Kali.” Others say the city’s name derives from the location of its original settlement on the bank of a canal (khal).
The Indian goddess Kali is said to embody the power of creation and destruction in one entity, Kali is Mother Nature, nurturing, creating, and devouring all at once.
This is all to say there will be no yoga from Thursday 26th January 2023. We will be back in action from Wednesday 21st February @ Stratton Village Hall and Thursday 22nd February @ Daglinworth Village Hall.
