September is Yoga Month! In order to bring awareness to the different styles and the benefits of a yoga practice, September is designated Yoga Month to help build awareness.
Generally these type of awareness building initiatives tend to be only focused on the good ol’ USA, however, there are lots of studios events happening in our own backdoor to help YOU take advantage and celebrate Yoga Month. Listed below are some of the ones I have found:
- www.yogamonth.org – What appears to be the offical Yoga Month website, contains lots of detailed information about the health benefits of yoga PLUS the best part, a list of over 1500 studios who are offering Free Week Yoga Passes for new students & even better, some of them are local, like; Bamboo Yoga (New Westminster), SOL Yoga Centre (Surrey), Exhale Yoga Studio (Vancouver), Semperviva (Vancouver, All Locations).
- My Yoga Online – Is offering a number of FREE videos for the month of September from some of their top teachers and feature vinyasa, hatha, meditation and more. Videos are available to anyone, anywhere and can be found; http://www.myyogaonline.com/free-yoga-videos-national-yoga-month.
Here is a clip about the National Yoga Month from 2009, from the founders:
What are you doing to celebrate National Yoga Month, perhaps its a personal 30 Day Challenge for the month of September or taking advantage of some of the FREE yoga listed above or maybe you are hosting your own events to celebrate National Yoga Month, or maybe you are finally taking that friend to experience a yoga class with you, whatever it is; tell us, we want to hear how you are celebrating!
Happy National Yoga Month!
