Several Tristar locations celebrated International Yoga Day.
Since 2015, International Yoga Day is observed on June 21 to spread awareness among the masses about the importance of Yoga and its effects upon human health. This year’s theme is ‘Yoga for Humanity’ across the world with great enthusiasm.
Derived from the Sanskrit language the word “Yoga” refers to uniting (with someone) or joining. Ancient Indian sage Patañjali is thought to be the Father of Modern Yoga because he is the person who codified all the aspects of Yoga into a certain format and introduced Yoga Sutras.

Your Excellencies, Suresh Kumar, chairman of the IBPC, dignitaries, ladies, and gentlemen good evening.
To give you a brief introduction of myself: I came into the UAE in 1976 as a 22-year-old in search of greener pastures.

When one reached the Maqta border after sunset you could possibly end up spending the night at the border and others will possibly remember how it took more than a day to get from Sharjah to Dubai through the desert, that was then.
The ‘Golden Rules for Generational Safety’ campaign jointly launched by the Traffic and Roads Agency of RTA and Tristar Group on March 9 has been introduced at the Nadd Al Hamar School in Dubai last May 17. The Tristar Kids Traffic Arena was set up where the students were given the opportunity to ‘drive around’ in pedal cars and are taught traffic rules like stopping before a pedestrian crossing and wearing seat belt all the time.

This initiative demonstrates Tristar’s commitment in supporting the UN Global Plan for Road Safety Decade of Action (2021-2030), declaring the ambitious target of reducing 50% of road traffic deaths and injuries by 2030.… [...]
