Celebrating International Yoga Day Differently
International Yoga Day will be a little different this year for yogis and yoga instructors alike. If you’re not able to visit your beloved studio for a hot yoga session to stretch the stress away, that doesn’t mean this year’s holiday is cancelled! Celebrate International Yoga Day the virtual way with live stream classes or take it to the outdoors with friends so you won’t have to miss out on the festivities!

By tapping into the body’s natural ability to heal itself, you help prevent and reduce physical problems like headaches, back pain, high blood pressure, asthma and fatigue.
Feeling stressed and overwhelmed? Re-center yourself with Jiaren Yoga Studio’s Kundalini Yoga & Meditation livestream. Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, a system of yoga and meditation that promotes health, happiness, and spiritual awareness. It is a complete science that combines postures (asanas), movement, sound current (mantra), breath (pranayama) and meditation into powerful sets called kriyas, designed to provide you with the experience of your highest consciousness.
Sunflower Studio offers Deep Flow Yoga which is a slower-paced class that emphasizes alignment, joint mobilization, fascia breakdown, and strength, as well as typical vinyasa (flow). It’s designed to help you strengthen healthy movement patterns, increase strength, and heal/avoid injuries. Deep flow is suitable for beginners to advanced practitioners, as well as athletes, injury rehabilitation, auto-immune conditions, and pregnant students.
Wild Vinyasa Yoga Studio offers Women’s Wellness Yoga that empowers the female body with specific postures and flows by supporting optimal feminine health at every stage of a women’s life. This includes supporting women through their natural cycles, fertile years, postpartum, post hysterectomy and menopause. These postures help to provide energy (shakti) and circulation to support the ever-changing female hormones and female reproductive system.
Looking for a meditative approach? Check out Natalie Stawsky’s Meditation, Breathwork and Yoga Nidra class. Natalie guides you into a relaxed awareness of the rhythm of your respiration.

The brain will switch from beta to alpha waves, signaling the transition from activity to meditation.
Has Your State Lifted Shelter-In-Place Orders? Try Outdoor Yoga!
If your favorite yoga studio offers it, try taking yoga outside! After all, we have all been indoors for much of the past couple of years, so why not get some fresh air? Invite your friends and family and of course, practice social distancing at the event. This is a great low-risk way to bring everyone together.
Check out these Vagaro business who are offering outdoor yoga classes:
The Valley Om is offering a variety of classes such as Move Your Asana and Yoga Nooner around the corner from their studio with strict social distancing rules and masks required at arrival and departure.
Wild Vinyasa Yoga Studio is hosting yoga at the park with live music! Don’t forget to practice social distancing while grooving out to the beat!
Don’t Forget to Include Your Dad In the Festivities for Father’s Day!
International Yoga Day and Father’s Day fall on the same day, so why not commemorate both by joining a yoga class with your dad!
While International Yoga Day may look different this year, instead of cancelling the celebration, check out Vagaro’s Marketplace to find live streaming yoga classes around the world. We can still stay connected and come together, even if it may be different than what we are used to doing.
