International Yoga Day Weekend
International Yoga Day, celebrated annually at Aham Yoga in Redmond, will take place this year from June 17-19, 2016. We will have classes, workshops, a potluck, movie night, a photo booth, and so much more to participate in! We believe in the universal impact yoga can have on the well-being of the world at whole, and rejoice in doing our part.
Type of Event
International Day of Yoga is celebrated all over the world, in 175+ countries, where the magic of yoga practice is acknowledged and apprecaited. Join us at Aham Yoga, one of the only studios in town choosing to celebrate this special day with as much enthusiasm, during the weekend of June 17-19th. Classes, workshops, a potluck, and more!
Prices vary depending on which classes and workshops you choose to participate in. We have a number of asana classes, including beginner and childrens yoga (filling up fast!), as well as various workshops, a potluck, and a movie night to raise money for animal welfare. Early registration is encouraged - contact for more details!
International Yoga Day has been celebrated unofficially all over the world for decades, and in November of 2014, during his address to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, stated,“Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. This tradition is 5000 years old. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature.” One month later, in December of 2014, International Day of Yoga was declared on June 21st, the longest day of the year.
So mark your calendars! From Friday, June 17th through Sunday, June 19th, Aham Yoga will have everything from yoga classes and workshops, to movies and a community potluck to celebrate the 2nd Annual International Day of Yoga. So far, we are the only studio in the area to celebrate this holiday with as much enthusiasm, with plans to expand more each year – so don’t miss out! Recognizing the powerful benefits of uniting through yoga, we join in with nearly 175 nations across the world in celebration of this ancient practice of India.
