International Yoga Day 2018: Why you Need to Celebrate it in India
More than 14 million people travel to India every year in order to explore the country‘s colors, cultures, and beautiful landscapes. Only in India, we have more holidays in a year than normal days. You might have heard of the most famous public festivities like Holi, Diwali, and Navaratri.
Visiting India is definitely worth it. Whether you like the mountains, beaches, seas, jungles, rain forests or deserts, in India you will find it all.
India is one of the most diverse and fastest-growing countries of today’s world. Every year, yogis from more than 100 different countries gather up in Rishikesh, also known as the World Capital of Yoga, to celebrate the annual International Yoga Day.
This year, the International Yoga Day will be on the 21st of June.
Connect with like-minded people
Even though there are many yogis out there already, most of us are still sourrounded by people who live unhealthy lives filled with stress and tension. During the International Yoga Day in Rishikesh, you can enjoy connecting with like-minded people who have- like you- started their spiritual journey already. Being surrounded by positive and shanti (peaceful) vibes will lift up your spirit and encourage you to evolve and create.
Celebrate Oneness and Unity
The true core of yoga has to do with unity and oneness. Cultivating and sharing these values with fellow yogis from all over the world will be a great experience for you. In India, we live in the moment. Nobody knows what will happen next. On International Yoga Day, you can live every present moment to the fullest. Of course, you should extend your stay and consider diving even deeper into yoga and healing.
At Yoga India Foundation, we offer special Yoga Teacher Training Programs that aim to elevate your yoga practise and expand your inner yogic wisdom.
