Did you know that today (June 21) is International Yoga Day?
The United Nations General Assembly declared June 21st as the International Day of Yoga on December 11, 2014.

Indian Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi had suggested June 21, which is the Summer Solstice, as the International Day of Yoga because "the date is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and has special significance in many parts of the world."

How will you honor this day? Are any studios in your area doing anything special for IYD or for the solstice?

I never even heard of this. Great idea, though. I love anything that raises yoga's profile

Agreed! We had some nice solstice celebrations at studios around here, but nothing specifically for International Yoga Day. Some would argue that EVERY day is Yoga Day. :D
