National Yoga Month Celebration Kicks Off




 

Yoga studios, teachers and students are celebrating Yoga Month throughout the country with free classes and events during September. For the third year, Natural Awakenings is a sponsor of National Yoga Month. This grassroots healthy living campaign and national observance, hosts the One Week Free Yoga Card program with more than 1,600 yoga studios offering free classes to new students during September and October. Cards can be downloaded from YogaMonth.org and redeemed at participating studios throughout the United States.

Yoga Month Founder Johannes R. Fisslinger says, “Experience is a powerful teacher, so we decided to give people the opportunity to try yoga for themselves.”

Hundreds of community yoga events are registered and searchable in the organization’s online yoga finder. The culminating event for the month-long campaign is The Time for Yoga, a global community practice on September 30. The Yoga Month campaign’s programs facilitate actionable guidance for individuals wanting to better their health through yoga. 

Yoga Month is a campaign of The Yoga Health Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization with a mission to promote preventive health care and inspire a healthy lifestyle. In 2011 more than 25,000 cards for free yoga were printed and 650 events were posted on the organization’s website.
