With a resolution that noted “the importance of individuals and populations making healthier choices and following lifestyle patterns that foster good health.”, on December 11, 2014, the United Nations proclaimed June 21st as the International Day of Yoga. As a city whose population heartily enjoys following such a lifestyle, Vancouver has some om-worthy events for you to attend on June 21st!

(I hope that you take some time for yourself to enjoy at least one!)
