Second International yoga day
June 21st 2016 from 17:00-20:00

We warmly welcome students of all levels and traditions to join us for an evening of inspiration and reflection.

The program consists of three parts:

17:00 - Reflections on Yoga in the Western World
Gillian McCann

In honour of International Yoga Day this talk will look at some aspects of the state of yoga in the west. We will start with a brief sketch of the introduction of yoga to Europe and North America and move on to talking about where we find ourselves today. Yoga is now an international phenomenon and in this discussion I will attempt to identify some of the challenges facing the yoga community as well reflect on its successes.
