This week one of our Fierce Grace Brixton regulars, Donna Noble, is giving us the lowdown on the first ever International Day of Yoga on the 21st June. There are events worldwide – you may have already seen pictures of yogis and yoginis in India practicing for the mass demonstrations they are going to hold, but Donna is hosting something a little closer to home…

“Hi, my name is Donna, and some people may recognise me as I practice at Fierce Grace Brixton. I am a Certified Yoga Teacher and have been teaching and practicing various styles of yoga for many years, it completely changed my life, which is why I am passionate about talking to anyone that will listen about its many benefits.

On the 21st June a group of independent practitioners and teachers will come together to celebrate the United Nations International Day of Yoga on 21st June at the Archbishop Lanfranc Academy in Croydon.

177 countries have supported this resolution – made by the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at United Nations. This is a worldwide and historical event and celebrations in the UK are being supported by the Indian High Commission.

We would love to you to join our celebrations, which are in the form of a Yoga Fair in South London. We’ll have a Yoga Exhibition, Yoga Workshops on Yoga for Back pain and other various ailments, Laughter Yoga, Yoga for Children, Pranayama, Meditation, wellbeing and much more.

The aim of the event is to create a holistic awareness of yoga and its health benefits and we will have tents and marquees, where organisations (including Independent teachers/studios, like Fierce Grace Brixton) will share information about their philosophies and styles.”

There will also be a number of heavyweight Yoga organisations such as the Art of Living, Brahma Kumaris, Patanjali Yoga present.

Don’t forget to come and say hello, we will have a stall here!
