International Day of Yoga – 2016

We believe in new beginnings. We believe that every moment of life gives you an opportunity to make a fresh start. All you need is a push to reach your potential, to break the monotony around you, to live your dream and to make a breakthrough.

a1000yoga has inspired such fresh departures in many ways. On International Day of Yoga, we have set out to celebrate these beginnings, and be a catalyst to many more. #a1000beginnings is an initiative to enable many new lives to write their unique stories through yoga. It’s about a 1000 new starts, and then another. Come, join us in this mission.

Make Yoga part of Life

The principles laid out in Patanjali’s yoga sutras dating back to 500 B.C. are still very relevant today, even in our modern information world. Yoga has evolved a lot from the days of Patanjali; it has taken different forms to meet the varying needs of practitioners all along its journey. Yoga continues to accept all changes, like the ocean accepts the river, absorbs, assimilates and grows. (A distinctive feature of sanaatan dharma of India)
