On the 21st June 2024 the world is marking its 10th International Yoga Day.

The theme for 2024 is "The World Is One Family" 

International Yoga Day holds significance as it unites people from various cultures, backgrounds, and countries in celebrating and practising yoga. This day provides an opportunity for individuals and communities to explore the advantages of yoga for both mental and physical health and to recognise its positive effects on personal and societal well-being. Yoga fosters mindfulness, enhances physical fitness, alleviates stress, and nurtures a sense of harmony and inner peace.

Whether you are a regular yoga practitioner or are a beginner in the Illawarra area you are welcome to join us in our Yoga-related activities. Yoga is an ancient Indian practice that began thousands of years ago. There are many different types of yoga, each relying on structured poses (asanas) together with breath awareness and control.
