Started in 2015, June 21st is the International Day of Yoga

This year marks the third year for the IDY. The date was originally declared by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015. Celebrate IDY and your yoga practice by attending yoga classes in your area. Consider doing a personal practice of (10) sun salutations every day during this week. Celebrate yoga in your life. Start every day greeting the rising sun with Surya Namaskar, the Sun Salutation. Warm up, wake up and enliven the whole body at the beginning of your day.

Celebrating Yoga around the globe

Watch this video “Sun Never Sets On Yoga – A 24-hour Journey of Sun Salutations Around the Globe” published by the Art of Living, Sri Sri School of Yoga in 2015. People all over the world were doing yoga Sun Salutations for IDY. Tracking yogis from 100 cities around the world doing Sun Salutations celebrated the days leading up to the International Day of Yoga. It’s beautiful to see all the different people moving through the poses. Surya Namaskar is a salute to the sun. It honors the day and celebrates the international yoga community.
