Friday, June 21, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
If you have ever wanted to try yoga and would like to be part of a historic event in Indianapolis, come to Monument Circle in the heart of downtown on Friday, June 21, for an hour of relaxation through yoga. Breathe, find your center, and enjoy time with friends. Namaste. (If you have a yoga mat, please bring this with you!)
To celebrate this love of the popular exercise, and this year’s summer solstice, the Circle City is hosting the single largest yoga event in the city. On Friday, June 21, at noon, Monument Circle will come alive with yogis of all different levels. The entire circle will become one big yoga mat, as instructors from all over the city lead a class of sun salutations. This event encourages new and advanced yogis alike to participate. It is a free event (or by donation) and a perfect way for you to spend your afternoon lunch break.
Once event costs have been covered, all donations will be split between two local non-profits committed to using yoga to empower health and wellness in Indianapolis.
