    Name: International Day of Yoga
    Date: June 21, 2017
    Time: 4:30 PM - 9:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    -- Come celebrate the 3rd Annual International Day of Yoga on Wednesday, June 21 at Song of the Morning Yoga Retreat located just outside Vanderbilt in the Pigeon River State Forest. Our community invites you to come and experience the benefits of a yogic lifestyle. All activities are FREE and everyone is welcome to join for whatever portion of the programming they would like to attend! The day will begin with a Hatha yoga class at 4:30 p.m. and dinner at 6 p.m. After dinner there will be an open house where you can tour Song of the Morning, enjoy music, meditation and a prayer for peace. Naren Schreiner and Lopamudra Bose (Lopa), this summer's Teachers in Residence, will serve as hosts of this event alongside Song of the Morning staff and community members. This day is recognized around the globe as a way to mark the timeless teachings of yoga originating from ancient India--methods that provide much more than just an exercise routine. Yoga is a scientific technique for bringing an inner sense of peace and harmony to all of life's experiences. Over 15,000 years ago the first yoga program took place in India. Yoga aims to transform both body and mind. On December 11, 2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 21st as the International Day of Yoga. This auspicious declaration came forth as 144 countries unanimously approved it. The declaration came when the Honorable Indian Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, during his address to UN General, stated, "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. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with you, the world and the nature.” June 21st was chosen because of its importance in the yogic tradition and summer solstice. Call our office at (989) 983-4107 to reserve your spot. In the words of the former Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, “On this...International Day of Yoga, let us see the benefits of this practice in terms of individual well-being as well as our collective efforts to improve public health, promote peaceful relations and usher in a life of dignity for all.”
