Throughout the month of September, people across the country will have access to an entire week of free yoga classes by visiting www.yogamonth.org. The offer is part of the National Yoga Month campaign which is designed to educate, inspire and generate awareness of the positive impact of yoga on health.
During National Yoga Month, one of a select few national health observances designated by the Department of Health and Human Services, millions will come together for free events and activities. Festivities will take place across the U.S., with hundreds of studios, teachers, individuals and organizers taking part in their own hometowns. The events are all designed to educate people about the mind and body benefits of yoga practice.
"We are all looking for ways to take an active role in managing our health. There are readily available solutions that don't necessarily require insurance or even a doctor," said Johannes Fisslinger, co-founder of National Yoga Month. "Preventative wellness can be accessed by simply unrolling a yoga mat!"
As part of its mission to provide actionable guidance and tools, National Yoga Month is providing people with an opportunity to try yoga for free. Whether you are attempting it for the very first time or are an experienced yogi looking to deepen your practice, participating is simple:
1. Visit www.yogamonth.org.
2. Pick a participating yoga studio
3. Print your Yoga Month Card (One Week Free Yoga)
4. Visit the studio and enjoy!
