World Yoga Day 2014


Today is the World Yoga Day 2014!

On Sunday 23rd of Febuary 2014, yoga teachers and schools in 90 countries around the world will donate their time and space to a two hour yoga session which is devoted to human rights.

The class should be held from 11AM – 1PM sharp, local time in each time zone, which will lead to a 24 hour yoga marathon around the world. Devoting our thoughts and energy globally to the human rights issue will generate a powerful impact.

Students attending the event will donate whatever tuition they can afford. All contributions are welcome and also students who can’t pay at all – the money is important to help victims of human right violation but so is the spirit.

The money will go to support Oxfam’s humanitarian response for Syrian refugees. Millions of people have fled violence in Syria and are in desperate need of shelter, food and water. Oxfam is aiming to reach up to 650,000 Syrian refugees in Lebanon, Jordan and inside Syria.
