International Yoga Day

 

un international yoga dayPrime Minister of India, Narendra Modi asked the world leaders to adopt an International Yoga Day, saying that by changing lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change. Addressing the 193-member UN General Assembly in United Nations. Modi said “Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day,” Noting that Yoga is “an invaluable gift of our ancient tradition”, he said: “It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature.”

“Yoga 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,” he said, adding “By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change.”

 


International Yoga Day 2017

OM International Yoga Day, celebrated on Sunday 18th June, dawned bright and sunny, as we gathered in the beautiful grounds of Alexandra Palace. The globally recognised day is celebrated on 21st June, with our annual event taking place on the Sunday to give as many people as possible the chance to join in with this day of free yoga.

We welcomed some early birds as we kicked off the day at 8am with a Morning Yoga Ritual on the Buttafly Main Stage, and as the day went on (and got considerably warmer), thousands of visitors brought their mats along to take part.

The day was a truly special one to be a part of, with so many people coming together to celebrate the power of yoga. The main stage was just one of five class areas throughout the event, and teachers such as Adam Husler, Rosalind Southward, Dipesh Munakarmi and ieva Wildlovebeamer led sessions. David Sye once again had the crowd jumping as he led both his Infamous Yogabeats class, and the finale of the day, in which visitors were encouraged to share the love and take part in a human tunnel.

The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University ran meditation sessions in the Meditation Space, allowing people to take some time to be still and reflect, before heading back into another yoga class!

With special thanks to Dan Peppiatt, founder of Yoga Like Water, who was our Master of Ceremonies for the day, and of course all of our visitors, teachers, and exhibitors. OM International Yoga Day 2017 was an amazing event, and we’re already counting down to next year!
