Yoga Day USA, created by the Yoga Alliance, is on Saturday, Jan. 24, 2009. Yogis of all ages and experience levels are encouraged to participate in this annual event.
Where? In the spirit of karma yoga (service-based yoga), yoga teachers throughout the United States will offer free or discounted yoga classes in honor of Yoga Day USA. Click here for a karma yoga class or workshop in your area. Unfortunately, I’m not seeing any participating studios listed in Washington, D.C., Arlington or Alexandria, VA this year.
Why Yoga Day? Bonding nationally under the Yoga Day USA banner name, participating studios and teachers throughout the country will reach out to those new to yoga and existing yogis with the intention of building a stronger sense of community. Many also use the funds raised to support a local nonprofit(s).
Don’t miss out! Plan to unroll your yoga mat on Jan 24 to show your support for this karma yoga event.
