The United Nations has declared June 21 as the International Day of Yoga! It is Sadhguru’s vision to make this day into a major offering of yoga and a possibility for people of all age groups, religions, nationalities and social backgrounds to experience meditativeness, expanding their perception of life from individuality to universality.
Meanwhile, in the U.S., events will be held pretty much everywhere. New York’s Times Square will host the United Nations celebration of International Yoga Day, which will include the Solstice in Times Square.
In Washington, DC, the Friends of Yoga and the Embassy of India will host yoga talks, demonstrations, classes, dances, and musical performances at the National Mall, while the First Post reports that over 100 U.S. cities will organize a yogathon to celebrate the day.
Numerous countries and cities around the world are hosting yoga events of their own. Vienna, Austria, will have a yoga session in Sigmund Freud Park, hosted by Yoga Mystery School; London will play host to the Om Yoga Show at Alexandra Palace; and according to the Economic Times, India plans to organize a “mega” event in Madrid with the cooperation of the Spanish government and 12 yoga schools.
