June 21st is International Day of Yoga and we are celebrating by offering free yoga!
International Day of Yoga 2016
We have a new event to celebrate the International Day of Yoga 2016.
The International Day of Yoga
In September 2014 the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke at the United Nations General Assembly and put forward a proposal for an international day of observance for yoga. This idea gained overwhelming support with the majority of the member countries and so 21st June was declared by the UN as being the International Day of Yoga.
Free yoga event 2015: 108 Sun Salutations for International Day of Yoga
To support this day we are offering free* online yoga classes and meditations so that we can come together and practice yoga. The highlight of the day will be our 108 Sun Salutations class. Thousands of you have been following our training plan for this all month and we're really excited to know that you'll be practicing together!
*These classes were free during 21st June 2015. They are now available for all our EkhartYoga members.
Get unlimited access to all our classes
For the practice of 108 Sun Salutations we have Roy joining us on percussion to make it a really cool experience! We warm up, practice 108 Sun Salutations, and we finish with a cool down and relaxation to incorporate the benefits. Read the article on how to modify your Sun Salutations

108 Sun Salutations as an offering
The 108 is traditionally practiced as an offering. In keeping with this tradition we invite you to offer your time/money to a worthy cause of your choice. Find sponsors to support you in this 'yoga marathon'. Come together with the rest of the EkhartYoga community to celebrate yoga and offer some good energy (and funds) to a good cause.
So invite your friends and practice with your global EkhartYoga community on International Day of Yoga.
