Join Austin’s biggest Yoga movement
Festivities for the 4th International Day of Yoga will be held at the Texas State Capitol on June 16th @5:45pm with the vision to Keep Austin Yogic!
Texas State representatives, Austin City Council members and Consulate of India, Houston have supported this event since 2015.
Since then, this family friendly free event has drawn more than 3000+ Austinites and local Yoga studios/partners making it the biggest Yoga movement Austin has seen at one place and time fueled by love of Yoga, as a service to the community.
The knowledge of Yoga is eternal. This ancient wisdom has withstood the impact of changing times through the ages and is as relevant today as it was 5000 years ago. Yoga continues to benefit humanity as a guiding light to lead a healthy, peaceful and happy life. Yoga’s universality and relevance is timeless as this wonderful knowledge transcends beyond the boundaries of nationality, cultures and religions.
Yoga has something for everyone and Yoga is for everybody. On December 11, 2014, the 193 member United Nations General Assembly proclaimed June 21st as “International Day of Yoga” by consensus with a record 177 co-sponsoring countries.
In its resolution, the UNGA recognized that Yoga provides a holistic approach to health and well-being and wider dissemination of information about the benefits of practicing Yoga for the health of the world population.
This free event is being presented by The Art of Living Austin, sponsored by FITT Finder in collaboration with many local studios and partners. International Day of Yoga provides a unique platform unifying diverse communities in Austin across all ages and backgrounds.
This year’s theme is “Yoga for Warriors” and we invite all the veteran community to join.
The program includes 90 min Yoga postures, peace meditation, live music and acro Yoga with local artists. Wear your cool summer whites, bring your Yoga mat and water.
