International Day of Yoga 2020 promises to be unlike any other. Since we can’t shower you with gifts in the centres, we’re taking a more digital approach to celebrating with the community. Try your first online class for free, enter to win online class passes or join us for a transformative workshop. Where ever you roll out your mat on the day, know that we’ll be practising right along side you, in spirit, at a safe distance.
What is yoga? For some people, it’s clearly defined in sacred Indian texts – the restraint of the senses, skill in action, the union of all dualities. For many, it’s a practice leading toward spiritual liberation from earthly constraints. For others, it’s a path to wellness that strengthens muscles, busts stress and quiets the mind. From caves in ancient India to gyms, schools and sitting rooms in the West, yoga today – rightly or wrongly – is a hybrid creature that is embedded in the fabric of modern life and will likely continue to evolve, as it always has.
This year marks the sixth year in a row that the world is celebrating International Day of Yoga taking place on Sunday, 21st June. In the past we have seen gatherings both mass and small as people came together to share the gift of yoga that India has given us. With the world only just beginning to slowly emerge from a pandemic lockdown, International Day of Yoga is going to be marked in different ways this year – not with big gatherings of people chanting and practising pranayama, but with individual celebrations from our homes that is shared with the larger community by virtual means.
Here at triyoga we are no different.
We’ll be celebrating all day long and into the evening. Our online class schedule will be running as usual. Here’s a glimpse of the special events we have planned…
