A Day of Celebration
Throughout its long history, yoga has inspired and changed the lives of millions and continues to bring people together from across the globe. It is our universal language which has taught us gratitude, love, mindfulness and so many other values. We honor the principles and all the lessons yoga has given us as we celebrate this year’s International Day of Yoga.
