During our time of pause, while the world came to something of a standstill, many have found solace, steady invigoration, and inner/outer connection through yoga. Please join Hawaii’s second annual International Yoga Day event, honoring this ancient body-mind-spirit practice of Yoga.
For some sessions you can join the practice on your mat at home to sample different yoga styles. Listen to Sanskrit mantras typically used in yoga and watch various yoga demonstrations. Tune in for conversation on yoga philosophy.
Originating in India, yoga goes back thousands of years. Modern research shows that yoga adds significantly to our quality of life when done regularly with proper technique. Studies repeatedly show that yogic postures enhance body functionality, while breathing slowly in a relaxed manner, can slow our heart rate. Focusing the mind through yogic meditation cultivates mental peace and potentially deep, spiritual insight.

Let’s celebrate an historic event honoring the ancient body-mind-spirit practice of yoga. We’ll watch an aerial yoga demonstration and listen to Sanskrit mantras typically used in yoga. Everyone will be invited onto mats to sample several different yoga styles. And we’ll meet and greet over refreshments and Indian pupus.
Thanks to the efforts of the Gandhi International Institute for Peace, the Hawaii Legislature has just formally recognized International Yoga Day on June 21st. As of this year, 2019, Hawaii now stands as a beacon of health and mindfulness, being the first state in the nation to do so!
Originating in India, yoga goes back thousands of years. Modern research shows that yoga adds significantly to our quality of life when done regularly with proper technique. Studies repeatedly show that yogic postures enhance body functionality, while breathing slowly in a relaxed manner, can slow our heart rate. Focusing the mind cultivates mental peace and deep insight.
“We yoga studio owners watch intense, stressed out people arrive for yoga classes every day,” says Renée Tillotson, director of Still & Moving Center. “The students leave class with a relaxed walk, better posture, smooth brow, broad smile, and a general air of enjoyment of life. What’s not to celebrate?!?”
Join us for this first ever event!
