After our roaring success in 2020, we are back to celebrate the International Day of Yoga when we need it the most. This year's event will focus on how to incorporate yoga into our daily lives for physical, mental and spiritual growth in these challenging times. Highly experienced yoga teachers will lead asanas (physical postures), pranayama (breathwork), relaxation, and mantra meditation free of charge. See you on the mat!
Can’t make it? No worries, we will be recording and posting the live events.
