Yoga means to yoke or unite. The United Nations says its aim in declaring Yoga Day is to raise awareness of the many benefits of yoga. Yet with over 177 nations celebrating Yoga day on Sunday the 19th June 2016 I believe the United Nations has “yoked” the world in harmony and peace.
You can join in the celebrations of International World Yoga Day by joining me at yoga classes throughout the week. More details coming soon about times. Alternatively you may like to join hundreds of others in celebrating yoga at a Festival near you. Here are some events I found:
FREE Yoga Day Festival - Brisbane QLD
Australian School of Meditation and Yoga
FREE Yoga Day Festival – Gold Coast QLD
World Yoga Day - NSW
Yoga Festival – NT
International Day of Yoga, 2015 (viewed 1 0/05/2016) http://idayofyoga.org/index.php?route=information/information&information_id=4
