Yoga Day Holland 2015
On Sunday June 21 Holland will celebrate the first International Day of Yoga declared by the United Nations. The New York based yoga teacher Silvia Neri will do the official Yoga Day Holland kick-off by offering a yoga class in one of Haarlem's nature parks.
Silvia Neri is the founder of The Yoga Trail and her yoga classes in Central Park are 'the best outdoor yoga in New York' (magazine Time Out NY - June 2015).
The United Nations recognised that yoga provides a holistic approach to health and well-being and that wider the dissemination of information about benefits of practising yoga would be beneficial for the health of the world population.
Yoga is becoming very popular worldwide. The USA has about 20 million yoga practitioners, Europe 8 million and Holland counts 600,000 yogis.
This nonprofit yoga event is organized by Robbert Zoon.
