We've made the most of International Yoga Day with multiple events for you (and your friends) to enjoy. Read on to find out what's on and to book.

bring a friend for free
from 19 - 23 june

Yoga is best celebrated with another, so we invite you to share your practice and bring a friend for free to any yoga or Pilates mat class at any triyoga centre from the 19th - 23rd June. The only caveat: your friend must be new to triyoga.

Simply browse the schedule, choose a class that suits you both and sign in at reception with your free guest. Arrive in good time so they can fill out their new starter form!

You can bring as many free guests as you like throughout the week, but you can't bring the same guest twice. No advance or online bookings.

about international yoga day

According to the United Nations, "Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word ‘yoga' derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness.

Today it is practiced in various forms around the world and continues to grow in popularity.

Recognizing its universal appeal, on 11 December 2014, the United Nations proclaimed 21 June as the International Day of Yoga by resolution 69/131.

The International Day of Yoga aims to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practising yoga."

yoga for health

This year's International Yoga Day theme is 'yoga for health'. Organised by the Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations, this theme aims to show how yoga can help us strike a balance between mind and body. It is with this theme and approach to health that the International Yoga Day organisers believe we can make a d"irect and useful contribution to humankind's quest to achieve sustainable development and move towards lifestyles that are in harmony with nature".
