Did you know? Tomorrow, June 21st is International Yoga Day! The United Nations General Assembly declared the holiday in 2014 to acknowledge the traditions of yoga and to celebrate global health and wellness. It is celebrated on the Summer Solstice, which has cultural significance around the world.

It is custom to practice Sun Salutations on the Summer Solstice (108, to be exact!). I’ll make sure to get in a few extra Sun Salutes tomorrow (probably not 108), and I will prioritize a daytime walk. Gotta make the most of the longest day of the year!

For me, Summer holds tradition. I am looking forward to family gatherings, annual picnics, outdoor yoga offerings, and weekend getaways. We have a few traditions at BYSYC to help kick off the season: check out our weekend lineup of YogaRhythmics, outdoor classes, and studio classes. Let’s celebrate the coming of Summer together! 

Hoping you have a great International Yoga Day/First Day of Summer,
Alicia
