Have you heard?

June 21st is International Yoga Day!

This historic event is a worldwide celebration and acknowledgment of unity and peace.The human mind is capable of such divisiveness and many of us have been convinced to believe that we are lacking. The great science of yoga gives us the tools to realize the beauty within ourselves and as part of the whole. Each of us is a vital part of the cosmos…and when you are your best self, the whole world is made better.

When we practice yoga we are harmonizing, quieting distractions and being at one. A healthy mind supports healthy body, healthy community, healthy world within the cosmic all. We invite each of you to come and celebrate the magnificence of noncompetitive goodness, love, clarity, tranquility, peace…LILA LOVE LIFE!!! – Lila Yoga Team
