Yoga for Peace

July 4th has passed.  Our next national observance is Labor Day and shortly thereafter September 11th.  To honor the lives lost on 9/11/2001 as well as celebrate the work and peace that has been inspired from the tragedy of that day, Yoga for Peace is holding a worldwide annual yoga event on September 8th 

Yoga for Peace event cities include:  New York City, Santa Cruz, Savannah, Brunswick ME, Bali, Cologne (Germany), St. Louis, Dallas, Boulder, Honolulu, Boston, Chicago ,Toronto, Los Angeles, Washington DC, New Haven CT, Reykjavik and Tokyo.  To register or obtain more info, visit www.yoga-for-peace.org.

For those in Washington DC:  Hundreds of people will perform 108 Sun Salutations in Farragut Square Park (17th between K and I streets NW) in Washington DC on Saturday, September 8, 2007 in observance of the events of September 11, 2001.

To mark the sixth anniversary of the World Trade Center attack, and to demonstrate their unified commitment to global peace, hundreds of yoga practitioners will gather in Farragut Square on Saturday September 8, and perform a series of yoga poses known as Mala: 108 Sun Salutations traditionally used to mark transition and spark positive change, and when done in sequence produce inner and outer feelings of wholeness, unity, peace, harmony and good will.  The intention is to perform an action of Peace, through yoga, chanting, and the creation of a massive Mandala on the lawn.

Yoga for Peace is a Not For Profit event and has been receiving support from both private and public sectors.  Yoga for Peace is a peaceful event, not a demonstration of words or speeches, but one of action, by doing yoga in a large group.  For questions please email:  yogaforpeacedc@gmail.com
