How Will You Celebrate the International Day of Yoga?

June 19, 2015

The inaugural International Day of Yoga is June 21, 2015 and hundreds of thousands of yogis will gather around the world and roll out their mats to celebrate. Yoga Alliance® strives to support and strengthen local yoga communities and is excited to see the yoga community come together on a global scale.

In honor of International Day of Yoga, we announced a special grant contest to help fund celebratory events throughout smaller yoga communities. We offered four $1000 grants and after reviewing over 150 applications, we picked our winners. You can learn about our winners and the events they have planned in the articles below:

We hope that you find a way to celebrate International Day of Yoga in your local community, however big or small. If you live near an event being held by one of our grant winners, we encourage you to attend! Need help finding an event in your area? On the official International Day of Yoga website you can search for events all around the world.

However you end up celebrating this monumental occasion, we would love to see! Share your pictures from International Day of Yoga on Instagram using the hash tag #YogaDay to be featured on our feed below!
