Come one come all to Ashland, Henry Clay’s home on Sunday, June 21st at 1 p.m.

The United Nations General Assembly has declared that June 21st is the first ever International Day of Yoga, and is planning a global celebration. Cities all over the world are planning large outdoor classes. Check out the event’s Facebook page here.

Here in Lexington we are fortunate to have a thriving yoga community–one that we want to invite everyone to join. If you are a practicing yogi, come to celebrate with your tribe and if you have never done yoga before this is a great opportunity to try yoga; there will be no pressure, no need to be able to touch your toes and no need to bring a thing. Those people who love yoga want everyone to love yoga. Remember–everyone was a beginner once. Learn more.

This is a day for people who have never tried yoga and those who love yoga to come together. Like anyone who is passionate about something people who practice yoga want EVERYONE to love what we love.  It is going to be a free all-level class that is designed to be accessible to everyone. We will teach this class the way most yoga classes these days are taught–instructors will offer modifications for people who have limitations.  And we hope that people who don’t even think they want to practice the poses will come to watch and share in the joy of a community of people practicing.

June 21st is also Father’s Day. Children can bring their fathers and fathers can bring their children–regardless of where anyone is in his or her practice. What a nice gift. And wouldn’t it be great to someday say, “I started my practice on the first ever International Day of Yoga?”

Local teachers including Cindy Hutchison, Lauren Higdon, Suzie Wheeler, Doug Cage Patrice Keitt and Lissa Sims will join forces to lead a free all-level practice on the lawn at Ashland (Henry Clay’s home) 120 Sycamore Rd. Mats are optional.
