June 21 – International Day of Yoga 2019
Friday the 21st of June is International Yoga Day. The fifth annual U.N recognised celebration when yogis the world over raise both money for charity and awareness about the benefits of Yoga, all while sending positive energy to those who need it most. One important aspect of the two-hour yoga session is that it must take place precisely from 11 am to 1 pm local time, so that the result will be a 24-hour yoga marathon all over the world.
KIND community in conjunction with yoga teachers from Elena_Yoga and Marcello Real, QuietZone.dk meditation centre and The International Denmark newspaper will be holding an open-air yoga event in the lovely Kongens Have (the park by Rosenborg Palace) on this special day (a map of our exact location will be added to this event page). There will be two 45 minute sessions of yoga, and a meditation. You are welcome to arrive and join us quietly when you can, making sure that mobile phones are turned off 🙂
The event is in English

Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness.
Recognizing its universal appeal, on 11 December 2014, the United Nations proclaimed 21 June as the International Day of Yoga by resolution 69/131.
