World Yoga Day 2017

International Yoga Day 2017

It’s that time of the year again – International Yoga Day 2017! 

We invite you to join us as we celebrate the 3rd annual International Yoga Day 2017. This day, June 21st, was commissioned in December 2014 when India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, called upon the United Nations to create a day that celebrated Yoga. This bill was supported by 176 nations. Never in the history of the United Nations have so many countries agreed on one thing. Now June 21st, the longest day in the year, has become International Yoga Day

Why is this a big deal? 

  • For the first time, the country of India is standing up to the World and getting attention to Yoga.
  • The world is recognizing that Yoga is a much-needed practice for us today. If we want to live better, healthier, and happier lives, we need to practice some form of Yoga. 
  • Billions of people practice Yoga every day in all parts of the world. We have lesser known days celebrated internationally. For example – Towel Day, Talk Like a Pirate Day, and World Frog Day.
  • This represents the potential that Yoga offers for everyone and opens the door to many new practitioners 

Celebrate International Yoga Day 2017

At Aham Yoga, we celebrate the spirit of Yoga every single day, but lets use International Yoga Day 2017 as a reminder to live healthily, happily and remember the importance of passing on the wisdom of Yoga to all around us. 
We always have an exciting line up of events for International Yoga Day (see last years pictures here). This year Aham Yoga is offering:
