We appreciate and respect that the 9th International Day of Yoga falls on the same date as National Indigenous Peoples Day. Today is a day to celebrate, recognize and express gratitude to the heritage and contributions of the Indigenous people and keeping their heritage alive.
We, the Paradise Valley Healing Centre, want to dedicate the Yoga Day to unity and healing. Please join us for a day of yoga, music and meditation today at O’Siyam Pavilion, Junction Park, from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.
Bring your yoga mat and join us for a transformative session guided by experienced instructors. Connect with nature, find inner peace, and let the harmonious melodies elevate your practice.
On December 11 in 2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 21st as the International Day of Yoga. The declaration came after the call for the adoption of June 21st as International Day of Yoga by Hon’ble Indian Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi during his address to UN General Assembly on September 27, 2014.
His words are worth repeating here: “Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. Yoga is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with ourselves, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us to deal with climate change.”
Since inception, Chopra Addiction and Wellness has been hosting the Yoga Day event in Squamish.
