International Day of Yoga

Updated: June 13, 2017

In 2014, The United Nations declared June 21 as the International Day of Yoga, and a record 175 member states have joined in the celebration!

On this International Day of Yoga, help us brighten up the world by sharing your inner light! We invite you to make a conscious and awakened choice to improve someone else's day in whatever way feels natural to you. Collectively, we have the potential to create millions of connections and positive ripples that can make a meaningful and significant impact on society.

Join us in encouraging others to participate in a yogic act of kindness – on or off the mat – by doing something on #IDOY2017 to help our communities and the world.

Share a photo of what you're doing with the hashtag #YogicActOfKindness!
