21 June: International Yoga Day

International Yoga Dag

On Thursday 21 June International Yoga Day is being celebrated worldwide. The day has been declared by the United Nations in 2015. Across the world, thousands of yoga events take place on this day and of course The Netherlands also participates! The classes and events that are being organized on International Yoga Day are often special events with for example live music, on big squares in cities or on special spots you wouldn't normally visit. The profit of the events goes to a good cause. Would you like to contribute to a better world? Both by donating to one of the events and from an inside-out perspective ;) If so, join one of the Yoga Day events this year! 

 

The idea for International Yoga Day was introduced by the prime-minister of India, Narendra Modi, in his speech during the UNGA, on 27 September 2014, in which he stated: 

"Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well being. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day."

Yoga Dag Nederland

On the website Yoga Dag Nederland, you'll find a complete overview of the special events on 21 June in the Netherlands. And on our event calendar you'll of course also find an overview of all outdoor Yoga Day events! Because 21 June is also the longest day of the year, it's the perfect day to fully enjoy the sun and practise yoga outdoors! 

The aim of Yoga Dag Nederland is to contribute to a better world. As your yoga practice will most likely also have a positive effect on everything around you and that's why we invite everyone to join Yoga Day! Buiten-Yoga.nl of course loves to contribute to this initiative by working together on communication and exposure around Yoga Dag events. Yoga Dag Nederland is an initiative from Robbert Zoon.
