Namaskarams from the KYM

**Heartfelt greetings to all of you from Team KYM.**

I hope this finds you safe, well and healthy.

As India moves into the third extension of the lockdown I am happy to share with you that our teachers and staff have been doing their utmost to offer support to the society in these times of great uncertainty and anxiety. I take this opportunity to thank the entire KYM team for their remarkable dedication and spirit of service.

Over the last few weeks, several more webinars on topics that are relevant to present times have been offered and the responses to these from the participants, students, friends, and well-wishers from across the world are a heartening affirmation of our efforts.

A large number of _Yoga_ therapy support sessions and one-on-one chanting classes have also been given online.

We are delighted to collaborate with EKAM Foundation in bringing live online classes to their volunteers who are working at the frontlines at various COVID-19 hotspots across India and abroad.

We have also offered structured online practices of _Āsana_, _Prāṇāyāma_, and _Dhyāna_ to many large corporates for their employees who are working from their homes.

All these sessions were offered at no cost to the participants with the true spirit of service to the society in difficult times.

All of us at KYM feel deeply grateful for _Śrī_ TKV Desikachar's teachings and very glad that we are able to be humble instruments in carrying these valuable teachings to so many across the world specifically during this period.

We affirm as always our sincere commitment to our beloved Founder and Teacher and pledge that we will do our utmost to give continued life to his vision for the KYM.

Do take good care and stay safe. Please feel free to reach out to us on our Facebook page or via email to communications@kym.org for any support.

**Kind regards,**

K S Sudhakar,

Managing Trustee
