THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS

Join the world wide celebrations for the United Nations International Day of Yoga at this annual Yoga Day Festival, a free community event featuring, fun and flowing yoga asana classes, deep relaxation, yoga breathing, exciting kid’s games and activities, live music and kirtan (yoga chant) and deep peace meditation.

The United Nations declared the first international yoga day on June 21 2015.   In 2016 this annual event continues on Sunday June 19th as we celebrate the second International Day of Yoga to raise worldwide awareness of the many benefits of yoga.

Yoga is an ancient, holistic approach to health and wellbeing that promotes harmony between individuals, their community, their natural environment and
the wider world.

The asanas of yoga can increase your flexibility, strengthen and tone muscles, balance hormones, cleanse and flush the internal systems of your body,
calm your mind and reduce stress.

But yoga is not solely about exercise. Ancient yogis understood yoga as a complete lifestyle and world view that can help you to discover who you are as well as your relationship to the world and nature and as such can provide valuable insights into addressing environmental challenges and promoting peace in the individual,
peace in communities and peace in the world. The sages of India understood that the outer can change by changing the inner, that the nature of our consciousness therefore affects the nature of our environment.

Ban Ki-moon
