2016 International Day of Yoga

Private Yoga Lessons, Personalised Yoga

It’s been a week of connection and celebration to mark the United Nations International Day of Yoga.

Parsnip and Ginger SoupTuesday 21st of June was the second annual International Day of Yoga, and we held our own celebration here at the centre in Cammeray in the evening. It was a lovely chance to get together with our community and celebrate all that yoga has brought to our lives.

One of our gorgeous teachers Gill Kamsler brought along the most delicious ginger and parsnip soup. Perfect for a wintry Tuesday night. Here is a link to the recipe from River Cottage: parsnip and ginger soup

On Sunday, we braved the rain to join Cate Peterson, Nigel Mitchell and hundreds of keen yogis at Bondi for the first of two World Yoga Day events held in Sydney.

Private Yoga Lessons, Personalised Yoga We were partnered with Anne Marie Johnston from Yoga Mate to offer free personalised yoga sessions to attendees on the day.

It was great to see Jessica Hobson from The Yoga Foundation and we were so happy to see our friends Campbell Wilson and Mark Bond creating beautiful video and photographic records of the day, and of the follow-up event at the Opera House on Tuesday (this beautiful photo is courtesy of Mark – thanks!).

If you weren’t able to make it this year, we highly recommend you pop along next year. What a wonderful opportunity to get together with the wider community of yogis and share all that we love about Yoga.

The second half of the year is jam packed with great training courses, retreats and even a yoga holiday.
