Celebrate International Yoga Day at Valentines Park

Valentines Mansion will be the backdrop for this year’s International Yoga Day celebration on Friday 21 June 21 in Valentines Park as part of the Active Body Healthy Mind project.

This large-scale outdoor event invites yoga enthusiasts and newcomers alike to experience the transformative power of yoga amidst the lush greenery and peaceful ambiance of the historic gardens.

The event will feature a variety of yoga classes suitable for all levels. Expert instructors will guide participants through different styles of yoga, including breathworks, sun salutations, yogic jogging, laughter yoga, yoga nidra, meditation & kirtan followed by song and music.

Yoga is renowned for its comprehensive health benefits, combining physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation to foster a holistic sense of well-being. Physically, yoga enhances flexibility, strength, and balance. Mentally, yoga is a powerful tool for stress reduction and mental clarity. Regular practice can reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, improve mood, and increase mindfulness. Through the integration of mind and body, yoga cultivates a state of calm and centeredness, essential for navigating the demands of everyday life.

Beyond individual health benefits, this event emphasizes the importance of community connection. Practicing yoga in a group setting fosters a sense of belonging and shared purpose.

So, this International Yoga Day, step out of the hustle and bustle of daily life and immerse yourself in the peaceful surroundings of Valentines Park. Whether you come alone, with friends, or with family, this event promises to be a rejuvenating and enriching experience.

Mark your calendars for Friday 21 June, and embrace the opportunity to enhance your physical and mental well-being, while connecting with a vibrant community of yoga enthusiasts.
