If you’ve been anywhere near a yoga studio this month, you know it’s National Yoga Month (yoga newcomers qualify for free one-week passes to studios across the country). But if you’ve been wrapped up with back-to-work/back-to-school busyness, you may have missed the memo about Global Mala Yoga this Sunday. It’s an all-styles, coming-together, international event. (Picture a yoga mat-to-yoga mat daisy chain around the world.) Take yours to Manhattan’s southern-most tip to do some postures for peace (108, to be exact).
WHO: Integral Yoga and Jivamukti teamed up to create this event.
WHAT: Global Mala Yoga for Peace is a one-day event, taking place around the world, that’s meant to connect the worldwide yoga community. (Well+GoodNYC insider info: “Mala” is based on the sacred cycle of 108—it’s the number of prayer or meditation beads that you see on the necklaces, as well as the number of poses you’ll do.)
WHERE: Battery Park, NYC (Take the 4/5 to Bowling Green) for the daytime event. Baruch College, Mason Hall for the evening program.
WHEN: Sunday, September 20, from 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.; sign-in begins at 10:30 a.m.
WHY: Experience “universal consciousness through yoga”
